Piazza Sebastiano Satta on Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations
On this week's episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Tony travels to his wife's homeland of Sardinia. During the episode, the Bourdain family spends time walking through Piazza Sebastiano Satta designed by the late Richard Stein, FAIA (father and partner to elemental founder Carl Stein) and noted Sardinian sculptor Constantino Nivola in 1966. From the scenes in the show, the piazza appears to have changed very little from its original design. Other collaborations between Nivola and Richard Carl Stein include Stephen Wise Plaza on Manhattan's Upper West Side, PS 55 in Staten Island and The Combined Police & Fire Facility on East 67th Street – winner of an Integration of Sculpture in Public Architecture Award from the NYC Art Commission.
