191. Cervinia-Breuil m.2050


Dear Aston,

The Casa del Sole Condominium Building was
devised by Carlo Mollino as a vertical sport center
to be built in the mountains. On the roof there was
to be a skiing club. Walking through the sports center
would be a form of initiation: "you go in a citizen and
come out a skier" After a series of alterations the
project was built in 1953.

Regards.
R
