Symposium Discussing the State of Italian Architecture Print E-mail

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ITALIAN ARCHITECTURE?
CRITICAL POSITIONS ON THE PAST, THE PRESENT, AND THE FUTURE

A symposium at the Istituto Svizzero di Roma, October 15–16, 2010,
curated by Reto Geiser

The first installment in a series of planned biennial symposia that aim to explore the productive intersections and overlaps between art, architecture, and design, this two-day symposium will bring together emerging and established voices to discuss the current state of Italian architecture.

As explained by the oraganizers: In the second half of the twentieth century, such singular figures as Aldo Rossi, Vittorio Gregotti, and Manfredo Tafuri, or collaborative practices such as Archizoom and Superstudio, not only shaped the architectural culture within Italy, but also took a prominent position on the stage of international discourse. Italian architecture gradually disappeared from the limelight as commercially driven forms of building replaced politically motivated manifestos and bold architectural visions in the advent of postmodernism. How has Italian architecture since developed? What does Italian architecture mean today? What is the background against which architecture is currently produced in Italy?
