[Silvano Zorzi. Engineer 1950-1990] Authoritative experts illustrate, in the pages of this book, the contributions made by Zorzi to the culture of engineering. No aspect of his versatile activity has escaped the attention of those who have worked on this monograph. A “modern engineer”, in the fullest sense of the term, Zorzi made “suitability” the main characteristic of his work, freeing this term of any merely utilitarian sense, any mechanical economic tactics. In the finest works of engineering, in fact, the form expresses a reduction, a work focused on subtraction, a rigorous exercise in composition. Utility and economy are ethical ends in Zorzi’s work: objectives of the rationality of calculation, they become attributes of the morality of the work in the composition. This book stands out for its accent on these often overlooked merits of the work of engineers, and on the ways in which Zorzi interpreted them. What the architect forgets, the engineer remembers; what the architect disguises, the engineer must reveal. This is the sense of the most important works and research of Zorzi.
