The renovation of the ancient seminary in the city of Giaveno into a school complex offers suggestions for a total re-thinking of the toponymy along the Tortorello torrent. A pedestrian walkway and a new viable bridge create spaces for a square and for the public usability of places that were inaccessible. Inside, the tower containing the staircase and elevator bodies serves as the authorizing element of the new urban landscape with dedicatory Venturian tribute

to the complexity and the contradiction in architecture.
