Aldo Rossi. The Architect and the Cities


The exhibition celebrating Aldo Rossi, over twenty years after his death, offers an opportunity to reflect on the great architect’s role in the sphere of Italian and international architecture in the second half of the 20th century.

-Alberto Ferlenga, exhibition’s curator

Exceptional material from collections and archives all over the world – both public and private, but primarily from the MAXXI Architecture archives –, most of which on show in the Museum’s display cases, produced by Molteni&C, will enable visitors to follow the development and the thinking of the great Italian architect and designer.
