University at Ferrara
By this collection of beautiful photographs, Raffaello Scatasta describes our University by exploring more than its outward appearance, indeed examining its intimate essence.
There are images that describe the appearance of things and others that reveal their significance.
Scatasta’s work starts with a premise we fully endorse. Universities are a living part of the history and affairs of the town where they came to light. This premise is easy to verify in the case of the University of Ferrara, and this gallery describes it effectively. From these pictures there emerges the assertion that the University is an integral part of the city and that they are intertwined in such a way that the University becomes an essential aspect of and indeed is indistinguishable from the town. With his images Scatasta defines the soul of a century-old relationship between Ferrara and its University.
Raffaello Scatasta is an architect who became interested in the representation of architecture and the urban landscape. He has carried out research on town planning at the University of Ferrara.
