The Roman duo La Macchina Studio has transformed a Roman flat from the 1950s into a magnificent setting halfway between reality and fiction. Between architecture, theatre, music and illustration, the flat in the heart of the Appio Latino was designed with a multi-disciplinary approach.

“With Retroscena, we wanted to enhance the irreverent and surreal nature of the architectural story, which is inextricably linked to its photographic alter-ego by playing with colour contrasts, graphic motifs and unexpected incursions” says Gianni Puri and Enrica Siracusa, founders of La Macchina Studio.
