Scuola elementare, Ercolano - 1957-1959

where: Ercolano (Napoli), Via Madonnelle
collaboration: F. Figiani, M. Picone

The school is among the olive trees on the hill of Pugliano, Ercolano, close to the street that leads to Vesuvio. The classrooms are on the Southern side, protected from the sun by shelters. The building is articulated into groups to break the continuity of 12 rooms for each of the two floors. The inner and external courts not only are a protection from the climate, but also spaces easy to access, able to create a stronger relationship between internal and external spaces.
