In the context of a new course of studies of Italian colonial architecture, this essay examines the position of Giovanni Pellegrini in the fi eld of urban planning and the design of several rural villages built in Libya in the 1930s. From the time of his 1936 colonial architecture manifesto, Pellegrini rejects the ‘folkloristic style’ of many contemporary works, sustaining a strictly modern design methodology that drew from local traditions and motifs suited to the geography and climate. The villages built for the intensive demographic colonisation of 1938-1939 confi rm this methodological approach and compared to those designed by other professionals show a more practical formulation and more specifi c integration with the environment, rejecting recourse to the monumental rhetoric of the classical style.
Keywords: Colonial architecture; demographic colonisation; founding rural villages
