Cabane and librairie 7L

Designed by: orizzontale

The Roman architectural collective orizzontale has designed a project that takes place in two areas of the Villa Medici: on the outside square, a reading room that welcomes visitors, and in the vestibule, the Librairie 7L, which presents a selection of works specially chosen for the festival.

The reading room, installed on the entrance threshold of the Villa Medici, is designed as a suspended terrace that invites visitors to change their perspective by taking a step up to read or observe the liveliness of the street.

The Librairie 7L hosts a selection of beautiful books highlighting the interaction between architecture and nature. This selection explores the work of architects, artists, photographers and philosophers. In the autumn, the selection of books will be enriched by publications dedicated to cinema, in echo to the Villa Medici Film Festival which will take place from 13 to 17 September 2023.
