The December issue of Arquitectura Viva, which focuses on subterranean architecture, celebrates the Cavea Arcari project on its cover. This performance space is located within the former Arcari white stone quarries in the hills near Vicenza in Italy. The vast, cathedral-like spaces appear both man-made and natural, with space, material and structure all formed from the same stone.

Inside is an article about the project which was developed by David Chipperfield Architects Milan for Barbara and Deborah Morseletto. The project was inaugurated in May 2018 with a performance by the English composer Michael Nyman.
