Maria Benedetto
Librarian at Leonardo Campus Library

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.
