[Italian 20th-century architecture. Atlas] A complete, versatile introduction to the study of Italian 20th-century architecture, easy to use for those interested in an initial approach to the literature and theoretical production that has accompanied design research over the course of the century. A long critical essay retraces and comments on the salient passages of the evolution of architectural culture, starting in the late 1800s. It is followed by a series of well-illustrated chapters containing a rapid introduction to each of the periods and subjects covered, along with vast anthologies of the writings of the protagonists of the disciplinary debate in the various historical phases. The interwoven issues developed in the various chapters confirm the richness of the experiences of the theoretical debate in Italian architecture, always with new facets, complexities and contrasts. This is the theoretical position of the authors Francesco Dal Co and Giorgio Ciucci, recommending continuous investigation conducted with critical commitment and documentary aims.
