The essay focuses on the theoretical connection between  Croce’s aesthetics and Carlo Mollino's writings. Both shares that art is a spiritual expression, resulting from the exclusion of other conceptual categories. In particular, the concept of transfiguration is used by Mollino in order to describe his intuitions. Among these, in particular Mollino's buildings scattered on the hill of Turin provide examples of transfigurations.
