ROOM "MISTERO PER LA LUNA" (Mistery for the Moon):

The room Mistery for the Moon offered to the guest like a sacred and spiritual place that stimulates to the meditation, consists of three environments characterized by a strongly searched essentiality, in a pure Japanese spirit, and by the exclusive use of the white color in the walls and the gold of the brass tiles that cover the pavement.

The only granted artificial lighting system is that from a candle, located in a small niche, from where the light it diffuses, and from the light of the the sun and of the reflected in the ground. Energetic center but also ulterior physical location of "a room in the room", the brass becomes a structure itself, detached from the walls, that it marks the perimeter of the environment, like it want to suggest the skeleton of a small temple. The same structure is painted in the bath.
The bed, located in the center of the room, is a functional sculpture, emergency, bed, but also a support space, a desk. This artwork wasn’t created in “adding” (lamps, accessories, chairs, bed), but the way is in “removing”, in order to return to a primordial essentiality in the exclusive relationship between matter and light. 
A bewitched night, dipped in the gold and the white colors, light like a breath, warmth like a ray of light.
