Il pro­get­to ha ri­guar­da­to l’in­te­ro edi­fi­cio, dal­la crip­ta al tet­to, che è sta­to ri­por­ta­to al­la sua im­ma­gi­ne ori­gi­na­le. Nuo­vi ser­ra­men­ti e ve­tra­te ad al­te pre­sta­zio­ni so­no sta­ti rea­liz­za­ti per

ade­gua­re la chie­sa al­le esi­gen­ze di og­gi / The pro­ject, whi­ch in­vol­ved the who­le buil­ding from crypt to roof, re­sto­red the ori­gi­nal ap­pea­ran­ce. New hi­gh-per­for­man­ce win­dow fra­mes and gla­zing we­re ma­de to bring the church up to to­day’s stan­dards ta da ser­ra­men­ti e ri­ve­sti­men­ti di fac­cia­ta che nel tem­po si so­no ri­ve­la­ti uno dei prin­ci­pa­li mo­ti­vi del de­ca­di­men­to e del­la con­se­guen­te ne­ces­si­tà di so­sti­tu­zio­ne di mol­te par­ti dell’edi­fi­cio. Una fra­gi­li­tà ben di­stan­te dai pro­ble­mi di re­stau­ro del­le gran­di mu­ra­tu­re dell’an­ti­co. La ri­na­sci­ta del­la Ca’ Brüt­ta di Gio­van­ni Mu­zio, no­to edi­fi­cio in via del­la Mo­sco­va all’an­go­lo con piaz­za Sta­ti Uni­ti d’Ame­ri­cae via Tu­ra­ti, si de­ve all’omo­ni­mo ni­po­te del mae­stro e re­cu­pe­ra le fac­cia­te mo­der­ne at­tra­ver­so l’espe­rien­za ma­tu­ra­ta nel re­stau­ro tra­di­zio­na­le. La Ca’ Brüt­ta è un qua­dro astrat­to, una com­po­si­zio­ne di pie­ni, vuo­ti, cro­ma­ti­smi e ma­te­ria­li di­ver­si, un po­lit­ti­co dal­le mol­te­pli­ci fac­cia­te. Il re­cen­te re­stau­ro ha ri­pri­sti­na­to que­ste cam­pi­tu­re e il lo­ro pe­so cro­ma­ti­co, co­sì co­me gli sfon­da­ti e i lo­ro graf­fi­ti: in que­sta ri­cer­ca fi­lo­lo­gi­ca è sta­ta ri­co­strui­ta an­che una por­zio­ne ori­gi­na­ria dell’in­to­na­co gri­gio scu­ro che co­pri­va nei pri­mi an­ni an­che una con­si­sten­te fa­scia del pia­no ter­zo, poi per­sa.

ha­ve pro­ved to be one of the prin­ci­pal rea­sons for its de­cay and for the con­se­quent need to re­pla­ce ma­ny parts of buil­dings. This is a fra­gi­li­ty that is ve­ry di­stant from the pro­blems fa­ced in re­sto­ra­tion of the mas­si­ve walls of struc­tu­res from the an­cient pa­st. The re­bir­th of Gio­van­ni Mu­zio’s Ca’ Brüt­ta, a well­k­no­wn buil­ding on the cor­ner of Via del­la Mo­sco­va and Piaz­za Sta­ti Uni­ti d’Ame­ri­ca, is thanks to the ar­chi­tect’s grand­son and na­me­sa­ke, who has been able to re­fur­bi­sh its mo­dern faça­des thanks to ex­pe­rien­ce gai­ned in tra­di­tio­nal re­sto­ra­tion. The Ca’ Brüt­ta is an ab­stract com­po­si­tion, a col­lec­tion of so­lids, voids and dif­fe­rent co­lours and ma­te­rials – a kind of po­lyp­ty­ch wi­th ma­ny fa­ces. Re­cent re­sto­ra­tions ha­ve brought back in­to fo­cus the­se sha­pes chro­ma­tic for­ce, as well as the ba­ses and their graf­fi­ti. Re­sear­ch has al­so al­lo­wed for the re­con­struc­tion of a por­tion of the ori­gi­nal dark grey pla­ste­ring that co­ve­red a sub­stan­tial por­tion of the buil­ding in the ear­ly years but was then lost. This is an ap­pa­ren­tly sim­ple mo­di­fi­ca­tion, but one that has been able to ree­sta­bli­sh the ba­lan­ce of the en­ti­re buil­ding. Equal­ly in­te­re­sting is a tech­no­lo­gi­cal tech­ni­que wi­th whi­ch
