The Chiodi fonds documents relate principally to his professional engineering work, studies and teaching work as well as his training and non work related activities. The fonds contains a documentary nucleus relating to his and his son Giuseppe's professional and study work as engineers and architects and a small nucleus of papers relating to his father Giuseppe's engineering work. In particular in the context of Cesare Chiodi and his son Giuseppe's work the largest body of documents relates to their town planning studies and work.
Of particular importance is the material relating to Cesare Chiodi's town planning and regulatory work (1926-60), his commission based and study group work and conference, congress and meeting activities as well as writings and a great many first edition publications.

Held at the Archivi Storici since September 2011.
