The Tenuta Dello Scompiglio is an area of 200 hectares, 50 of which form the main nucleus. Situated in the Vorno hills, it includes a centuries-old park with a villa, agricultural areas and some farmhouses, woods and areas of transition between wild woodland and ancient terracing revealing architectural features. In past centuries the estate was a self-sufficient farm, cultivating mainly olives, vines and fruit. In the last few decades it has been left abandoned and nature has regained the upper hand, covering the surfaces with brambles and pines.
The human imprint influences and structures nature, which, when left to itself, conquers its dominion in a disorderly way. Once the human being has interfered in an ecosystem, it cannot regain its independence. For this reason, the project Progetto Dello Scompiglio intends to re-establish a dialogue both with the present environment, with all its natural and architectural elements, and with its history, seeking contemporary forms of interaction and responsibility. It is a relationship of interdependence, exchange and symbiosis, rather than exploitation: an interaction between various organisms. The human being, with its own organism, consisting of corporeality and senses, experiences and longings, shares with other human beings the organism of the space which feeds, warms and comforts him.
Dialogue and activities with the land, the woods, the wildlife, the architectural elements, the visual and performance arts in outside and inside spaces contribute to a search for culture.
