Pitagora Museum

Architects: OBR
Location: Crotone, Italy
Project Year: 2011
Project Area: 1,000 sqm
Photographs: Mariela Apollonio

The project has a double goal acting at global and local level: on one hand promoting the city of Crotone on the international circuit of cultural tourism through enhancement of the city’s historical and scientific identity with Pythagoras, on the other hand activating an urban and social renewal process of that part of Crotone.The architecture of the museum sought to create a new landscape morphologically rooted to the ground, through a partially hypo-epigean space that integrates the museum into the mountain through continuous coverage with the existing topography, underlining the profile of the hill.

Contador Fights Back

“Waiting wouldn’t have been the same. I’ve been on the back foot for the whole Tour, with knee problems. If I hadn’t attacked from the gun today I wouldn’t have been happy with myself. It didn’t mater to me if I finished fourth or twenty-fourth on GC. I wanted to enjoy myself and I did. It was incredible. There were a lot of people supporting me out there. If the crowd enjoyed it too, that makes me even happier.”
