Alzabile

Designed by Ignazio Gardella – 1948

Era una ragazza colta, ma che usava la sua intelligenza solo quando serviva. Era una persona preparata e libera, perché soltanto se sei colto, sei libero. La libertà avviene secondo dei tuoi modi di vedere la vita. Lei si era progettata un personalissimo sbarco lunare, voluto a ogni costo e molto faticato. Sapeva rialzarsi sempre. Aveva deciso di studiare architettura a Genova, c’era andata un giorno, d’estate, era stufa di prendere il sole ai Bagni Sillo. Sori era attaccata, poteva andarci in motorino. Un manufatto incastonato nella città che l’aveva colpita. A Milano aveva chiesto ai genitori di andare a vivere da sola. I suoi stavano in via Paleocapa, in una casa ad appartamenti, ma lei preferiva il quartiere di Porta Romana. Aveva visto un appartamento in un edificio non molto diverso da quello in cui era cresciuta, con un giardino privato, che era stato costruito attorno a un albero. Non l’avevano abbattuto per costruire la casa. Adorava Milano, soprattutto quel sofisticato understatement dell’alta borghesia imprenditoriale e cosmopolita e il suo ruolo di azione culturale, di committenza e mecenatismo quasi neorinascimentali. E senz’altro anche i vetri dei suoi tram. Le piaceva camminare fino ai Giardini Pubblici di via Palestro ed entrare in uno dei luoghi in cui si sentiva più a suo agio, nonostante la sua drammatica vicenda, o forse proprio perché aveva riconosciuto un’attitudine, quel suo innestarsi nella storia e lavorare sui suoi detriti: il Padiglione di Arte Contemporanea. Perché era accanto a una cosa così diversa come il complesso neoclassico di Villa Reale con cui sapeva dialogare, perché assomigliava a certe cose che aveva visto in Europa e per la sua configurazione formale così precisa. A volte scappava a Venezia solo per mangiare un gelato alle Zattere prima di salire a casa.
She was an educated girl, but she only used her intelligence when it was needed. She was able, she was free, because you can only be free if you’re educated. Freedom happens according to your view of life. She had planned her very own landing on the moon; she wanted it at any price, she fought for it. She always knew how to get back on her feet. She had decided to study architecture in Genoa, she’d gone there one day, in summer, she was fed up with sunbathing at Bagni Sillo. Sori was right next door, she could go by scooter. A building embedded in the city that had struck her. In Milan she’d asked her parents if she could go and live by herself. They lived in Via Paleocapa, in an apartment block, but she preferred the Porta Romana neighbourhood. She had seen a flat in a building not very different from where she had grown up, with its own garden, which had been built around a tree. They hadn’t chopped it down to build the house. She loved Milan, especially the understated sophistication of the upper class and cosmopolitan businessmen and their almost neo-Renaissance role of making culture, commissions and patronage. And of course its tram windows. She liked walking as far as the public gardens in Via Palestro and entering one of the places where she felt most at ease, despite its dramatic history, or maybe it was because she had recognized an aptitude to slip into history and work on its debris: the Padiglione di Arte Contemporanea. Because it was next to something so different as the neoclassical Villa Reale which it could communicate with; because it was like some things that she’d seen in Europe; and because its formal configuration was so precise. At times she would run off to Venice just to eat an ice cream at the Zattere before going back home.
