Fontanile Pool in Tarquinia

This small private pool is located in the garden of a villa at the bottom of the old city walls.

Fontanile Pool

Like the Villae Minimae, the Fontanile Pool is designed to be a machine for observing the landscape: two stone walls are framing the nature around, isolating a single point of view, like an optical device.

Fontanile Pool

These elements link together three open air spaces: “landscape” – “pool” – “deck”.

The shape and the proportions of this work remind the old country fountains of the surroundings.

The project aims to create a space in harmony with nature and artifice, with the countryside and the city, allowing for contemplation of the landscape.
