The Gestalt Ecology theory is an empirical discipline which studies the relationships between the mankind and the social aesthetic morphology of its habitat. The Gestalt Ecology is an impulsive advice of the human mind, it's an interactive approach,a theory sunk in the human history, which people have been practising always on an unconscious level, but still it is an innate element of every local community and it has beenever alive. The Gestalt Ecology can be compared to asort of DNA which includes all the resources exploited in an interactive way by the human being inthe attempt to build his own habitat e.g.: Material - Expressive - Social- Technical- Artistic. The application of the Gestalt Theory rises an important need for contemporary people: to study the interactions with the environment in order to play an active role in the challenge for a positive transformation of the territory.Download Gestalt Ecology

Still subjects, objects in movement, being carried away by the resonance of the place, the utopia of a surrounding architecture and a silent look at reality as a photographic document.
