    The Collected Fictions Project explores the blurry boundaries of our memory in understanding architecture masterpieces. The role of photography in massively disseminating those works is clear, as it is also in trying to synthesize them with only a few and universally accepted shots. But photography is not only a tool to aseptically catalog and document the buildings, as it is also the perfect media to strengthen its virtues by a direct and sharp focus on its real values and why not, also fictional possibilities. Reality and fiction then merge and redefine what is the real essence of those buildings which have built the history of modern architecture.
