Quarto, 108 pages, ilustrated throughout with photographs, drawings and sketches. Illustrated wrappers. Wrappers slightly soiled.

- Second edition. One of 1000 copies. “Questa raccolta di interventi, progetti e analisi, vuole essere un momento di sintesi e di bilancio del mio lavoro di ricerca che in questi ultimi anni si è rivolto soprattutto ai problemi legati alla "riappropriazione dell'ambiente". Questo tipo di lavoro pur essendo sempre legato a problemi reali raramente trova una sua collocazione e una sua utilliz zazione secondo una pratica concreta e continua di sperimentazione. La mancanza di strutture culturali e l'esigenza da parte della società burocratica di controllare la cultura attraverso le "separazioni disciplinari", paralizza spesso il mio lavoro, che di volta in volta a secondo delle rare occasioni e delle situazioni in cui riesco a collocarmi, si modifica soprattutto per l'uso differenziato di strumenti.” Includes also a 7 page analysis of a project La Pietra did with Franco Vaccari: Viaggio sul Reno, 1974.
