Campo Libero (The Innocent House), at the XV Venice Architecture Biennale.

Campo Libero (The Innocent House) is a mobile device for the reactivation of the lands confiscated from the mafia in the south of Italy. Designed as an off-grid rural mobile pavilion for the Italian organization Libera, which promotes legality by training volunteers, providing legal support and helping refugees working with no rights in the tomato fields, Campo Libero overlooks the land, reclaiming the archaic lyricism of the southern countryside.

Campo Libero
is designed to extend its volume, thanks to an integrated scaffolding structure that provide access to the roof and allows a second story to be built.

The project was commissioned for the XV Biennale di Architettura di Venezia, by Taking Care, the exhibition at the Italian Pavilion curated by TAM Associati.

Five architects worked together with five organizations active in the territory to develop five mobile devices that activate the Italian peripheries, promoting five common goods: health, legality, sports, education, environment. During the exhibition, while in the Italian Pavilion the projects are shown, these devices will be built with the help of the civil society through a crowdfunding campaign:

The intention of the curators of Taking Care, designing for the Common Good, is to go beyond the Biennale exhibition and create an action that will have a real impact in the disadvantaged territories of the Italian urban peripheries.
