The final form, the articulation of the contents is the result of an often complicated comparison between the interlocutors, clients, companies, technicians and administrators of the territory: reality, expectations and economy.

Flexibility, persuasion, patience, determination and a look to the future are the tools that lead to the graphic and technical definition of the project.

Then the construction, difficult, its drawbacks and surprises, the human relationships of the construction site, learning, the search for precision, the choice of the right material, the detail drawn on the walls, the constant presence up to the olive branch on the roof.

The beauty of the architect's work is precisely in the comparison between the first idea, the Dream, the construction, Reality and time, Harmony of Memory.


Arch. Emilio Mosasso

Architecture is predicting the dream as the architect is the interpreter of illusions.

Being an architect means giving shape and harmony to the dreamed image

Balance and emotion must be the engine of the project

Technique and detail the strength of the construction result

When the signs of aging consolidate the emotion of creation, this is the balance of the right project

An architecture must create the feeling that could only be that one in that place

The heart has always been full of passion

The same inventive drive of the first day

A life story to be repeated on the next lap

40 years of commitment and 560 projects

This site is a summary of a path where the end is not decided.
