The book unfolds the lessons of four masters of Italian Modern Architecture – Franco Albini, Ignazio Gardella, Luigi Moretti and Ernesto Nathan Rogers – through their own words or those of preeminent scholars who have investigated their theoretical and professional work, with the aim to offer an insight on their key role in the development of the 1940s and 1950s architecture culture as well as to promote the ideas and visions which fostered contemporary architectural design.
Presentazione del volume
Along the evolution of the peculiar identity of Italian architecture, the postwar period represents a milestone for the development of innovative design practices. The challenges generated by the Reconstruction triggered paradigmatic experimentations which have become seminal references for the next generations of architects.
The book unfolds the lessons of four masters of Italian Modern Architecture - Franco Albini (1905-77), Ignazio Gardella (1905-99), Luigi Moretti (1906-73) and Ernesto Nathan Rogers (1909-69) - through their own words and those of pre-eminent scholars who have investigated their theoretical and professional work.
