Manuel Canu and his work
"Manuel Canu's work is concerned with the process of acculturation - the cultural and psychological change that results when cultures collide.
Having lived, studied and worked away from is native Italy for some time, an experience that forced him to consider the meaning of home, Canu's work developed into an exploration of traditions, cultures and beliefs, specifically as seen through the prism of architecture.
Canu sees architecture as a meeting ground between the old and the new, and a mirror to the cultures it serves."
