Tramoggia (hopper) is a device consisting of a container in the shape of a truncated pyramid or truncated cone with the smaller base facing downwards, in correspondence to which there is a shutter that activates or stops by falling loose material. There are many functional, constructive and dimensional versions of this ancient instrument. The tramoggia device is taken as the key to interpreting the complex relationship between man and the alpine landscape: it is the design principle of a minute architectural intervention in which the real author is the mountain.
