Condominio in via Nievo 28/A

Description
Inserted in a subdivision plan in the Fiera area of ​​Milan, this condominium is characterized by its "quiet" simplicity, thanks also to the desired contrast between the regularity of the parallelepiped and the unusual cladding in blue-green, klinker tiles. to a refined elegance and almost out of time.

The sophisticated bourgeois character of this residential unit is highlighted above all in the distribution system of the dwellings, variations and variations of the typical floor, in which galleries and corridors are never introduced to the real environments. The discreet elegance of the common areas is expressed instead in the walls treated with Venetian glossy stucco which is flanked by the mosaic flooring designed by Francesco Somaini to accompany the sinuous progress of the helical lifts.

The building in via Nievo, anticipated in the use of the lining by the headquarters of Loro & Parisini (1951-1957), introduces a trend that Caccia will propose again in another series of residential interventions. Unlike the "prototype", however, the "replicas", always in litoceramica, are no longer colored, or rather reproduce that crème caramel color defined by their designer as "a non-color, a material". It is above all in the building of piazza Carbonari (1960-1961) that the research on the housing theme seems to be solved at its most significant levels, through the superposition of "villas in the city" in a context that is anything but stimulating.
