Dialogues on Modernity
TUE, 12 JUN 2018
Registration: 9 am
Conference starts: 9.30 am
Palazzo della Triennale
The event intends to promote the entire work of Bruno Zevi, bringing together his critical commitment, as an art and architecture historian, and his educational work as the founder of Metron and of L’Architettura – cronache e storia, together with his professional life as an architect who worked and formed ties with his contemporaries, as well as his civic commitment as a politician and promoter of social struggles.
One constant aspect of his work was his interaction with modernity, in which he aimed to grasp a new dimension in the complex, diverse forms in which it appeared, and that became a key feature of his critical contribution and his visio of contemporary phenomena. He did not impose an interpretation of this but rather opened up a process of assimilation and perception of the stimuli that he brought about by his ability to see, and to teach others to see something more than architecture, thus introducing a unique method of criticism.
