12 GIOVANNI MICHELUCCI, BRUNO SACCHI, COLLE VAL D’ELSA, 1973–83
Bank. This red steel structure could be the work of an up-andcoming talent who has pulled all the stops —but Michelucci was 82 years old when the planning began. His initial move was to conceive of a covered market square — an outdoor space for the whole community. The framework reflects Michelucci’s fascination with boughs, branches, and roots.
