Stanze is the first architecture book series by Plectica Editrice. It is a collection of long essays that focus on the topic of the room.

The series’ volumes provide a complete picture of the multi-faceted interpretations of the room as a spatial, political, symbolic or temporal element, hence not only material but also immaterial.

Stanze intends to foster a dialogue between English-speaking and Italian readers and authors. In this regard, the volumes of the series will be published each time in one of the two languages.

This first volume of Stanze assembles carefully selected images and texts by Ugo La Pietra. Anemblematic figure of the Italian Radical Season, La Pietra shares his understanding of the room as the setting for material and visual experimentation with daily social processes and objects. This singular editorial exercise is conceived to enhance the efficacy of the style employed by La Pietra in these works which stands out by employing writing as an essential component of design.
