Aldo Rossi. The Architect and the Cities

Aldo Rossi. L'architetto e le città

MAXXI hosts a retrospective dedicated to Aldo Rossi, the world-famous architect. The exhibition, curated by Alberto Ferlenga, analyses the extraordinary theoretical and practical contribution of an "unusual architect". In the reconstruction of Berlin as in the debate about Barcelona, Rossi places his studies within a broader tradition of national analytical culture and in relation to the most urgent issues of urban contemporaneity.

Traveller, reader, academic, writer, poetic and innovator architect, he was the first Italian to win the Pritzker Prize in 1990. The cultural project, architectural projects, installations and domestic set-ups are the three main themes of a complex and multi-faceted story involving training, teaching and research, building an international network, design as an independent research, criticique and legacy.

On display, materials from the MAXXI Architettura archive and archives and collections from all over the world: the famous drawings, projects, writings and a spectacular sequence of models, a kind of imaginary city, a tangle of ideas, images, places, identities and memory.
