Margine was born in 2013 from the idea of two professionals believe in Architecture able to tell and to support the variable needs of contemporary life. The office, based in Rome, deals with architecture, landscape and territorial planning. Giulio Ciccarese, born in Lecce on 31.05.1986 Valentina Pontieri, born in Crotone on 29.03.1986

Brief manifesto for the right to decay and to resistance to re-use, for recognizable places in the urban landscape.

The contemporary debate rediscovers the uniqueness of sedimentation in the transformations of the city and tends to enhance the role that abandoned, unused, spontaneous and overwritten architectures, assume in the city and in the construction of the aesthetics of a place . Time and nature create rare and spontaneous alchemies between built and unbuilt and the precarious equilibrium between the anthropic and biological parts becomes place and identity. They are places of small scale or urban scale, which may be the facade of a single industrial building invaded by spontaneous superfetations, as well as post-war buildings infested with vegetation. Places that identify neighborhoods or entire cities more than monuments, squares or processes of urban regeneration can do. Contemporaneity tends to transform these spaces with excessive superficiality, rightly occupied in the safeguard tout court of the recognized heritage, omitting the value of these recognizable places.


Insouciance is an experimental project presented at the exhibition contest “Le ali ritrovate dell’Hotel de Galliffet”, promoted by the Institute of Italian Culture. The project imagine to implement the offer of cultural activities of the Insitute, triggering processes of relationship between the Hôtel de Galliffet with its “found wings” and the court, be declined in the seasons and times of day, in order to bring to city a place to live with lightheartedness, that Parisians call insouciance.

Quadrilla is the project 2nd classified in the international design competition for the creation of innovative schools, promoted by Italian Government. The school that houses 200 children on a single floor above ground that allows universal accessibility, is designed as a compact and recognizable element, carved by five courts that characterize the interior space and allow constant natural lighting.

Follow the yeIlow is the project 3rd classified in the restricted design competition for a temporary installation that redefines RAFT’s front and transforms it into a fluctuating, ephemeral, lightweight facade that, through a big arc, opens itself to the Favara community and the world. It is designed as a suspended skin, a discontinuous surface composed of orthogonal sheets fixed on the existing facade.

TerreFerme is a pun, it means in Italian both ‘mainland’ (fermemeans ‘fixed’ in Italian) or closed land (fermé),the desperation which you escape from, and the hope which you run for. The proposal wants to open the debate on the theme of the migration. It plans to realize an installation that varies its sense and its function during the day. It works in the daylight as a landmark, and in the night as a lighthouse.

Rigenera is an experimental participatory process promoted by the communities of Terre di Acaya e Roca, made to share an urban development strategy. We curated the organization and the coordination of the participatory process, as well as the drafting of the Integrated Strategy for the Sustainable Urban Development.
