Giovanni Mistretta, a very pragmatic professional who combines humanistic sensibility with careful study of construction details.
Born in Venice, student of Gardella, Samonà and Piccinato, Giovanni Mistretta, after gaining experience in the Milan studios of Figini & Pollini and BBPR, began his career with important works in Italy and abroad. A very pragmatic professional, he combines humanistic sensibility with careful study of construction details.
This volume, with a fine selection of illustrations, outlines the architect’s activities. From the apartment building on Piazza Leonardo da Vinci in Milan to the multifunctional facilities and projects for cities, churches and schools, the expressive force of Mistretta avoids architectural fashions in pursuit of a creative path whose consistency and continuous application demonstrate that it is possible to astonish by starting with scientific simplicity.
