A compulsory route takes the visitor along a chain of events to the heart of the project while a ramp connecting the path to share more intimate and meditative space burial.The route:The succession of situations at different spatial scales leads the visitor to penetrate and go through the whole complex, each time discovering different views of the cemetery landscape. The project becomes a sort of collage of spatial situations within an architectural montage sequences.Ramps and irregular spaces caused by the offset of the grid to provide the path effect of surprise and discovery: an "architectural promenade" where everyone participates.The light:The light is filtered to 'the internal space of the tomb crypt through a diaphragm placed between the horizontal plane (of movement) and the vertical plane of irregular shape.The external light spreads slowly within the grave space, it expands and mixes darkness and gives shape to the space thanks to special color gradations. A space modeled in a manner almost sculptural in which the light pattern marks the passage of time.A loophole in the shape of a cross carved into the base of the crypt, the light inside the model giving more privacy to the place of meditation and prayer.The materials:The selection and use of simple and inexpensive materials is measured by the size of the project and the economic plan imposed from the Promoter: it was decided to operate on the composition and redevelopment, transforming it into a kind of urban space usufruibile in the form of walking. Dynamic as opposed to the static view of the monumental tomb.The exposed concrete and smoothed, used for both horizontal and plans for retaining walls, is to present a unified vision to the project in which light, shadow and the carvings left by the molds with their geometry will enrich the value plastic.
