Talks, seminars and workshops for families; a hub where an audience of specialists, critics as well as families and children discuss about issues such as drawing, design and urban planning, reinterpreted through the work of the great Italian architect.
The exhibition, curated by Alberto Ferlenga, showcases the heterogeneous work of the architect from Milan, reflecting on his complex legacy and on the reception of his theoretical thought. Aldo Rossi (1931-1997) was an absolute protagonist of Italian architecture in the second half of the twentieth century. He also contributed greatly to the international debate on the city, drawing attention to issues of different nature, linked by a single thread: architecture.
The exhibition is divided into three main sessions: the cultural project, architectural projects, installations and domestic projects. Drawings, models, water colors and design objects as well as minutiae of his paperbooks are shown in the exhibition area. The materials come from several archives: not only the Fondazione Aldo Rossi and the MAXXI archive, but also from some of the most prestigious international architectural foundations and collections from all over the world.
MAXXI organizes all the collateral events to the exhibition on-line, giving everyone the opportunity to take part in the workshops and lectures, in times of restrictions and social distancing.
The exhibition will be open until 17th October 2021.
