Mille cipressi

A Thousand Cypress

by Luca Ferri

A man, inside his kitchen, is preparing his packed lunch. He has decided to visit The Brion Tomb, a monumental funeral complex, designed and built by the Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, commissioned by Onorina Brion Tomasin, to honour the memory of the deceased and beloved relative Giuseppe Brion, founder and owner of the Brionvega company, located in the small cemetery of San Vito, in the hamlet of Altivole in the province of Treviso. Placed the food inside a polka dot plastic bag, we will find it walking inside the cemetery, observing with meticulous care the details designed by the Venetian architect, while in its silent head will resound the precious words pronounced by the architect in a conference held in the summer of 1978.
