Stones are polished mountains.
Sun, water and wind play a role normally underestimated in the definition of forms in architecture.
The material is beautiful because it is consumed and transformed, manipulated by natural elements, regardless of human will, that act with such slowness, perseverance and insistence as to escape human comprehension and attention.
It is necessary only to observe and admire the beauty effused on things by time.
