Exhibition Catalogue: Zevi’s Architects. History and Counter-History of Italian Architecture 1944-2000

MAXXI-Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo April 25, 2018 - September 16, 2018

The book is pulibshed on the occasion of Zevi's birth and it's an homage to the great historian, lecturer, critic, politician and designer. It is also a reflexion about the modern and contemporary Italian architectures that Zevi's supported and promoted through his work.
Through drawings, models and other visual materials, the book intends to clarify the fundamental role played by Zevi in the Italian post-war architectural debate, highlighting the importance of the relationship between architecture and active politics.
Maurizio Sacripanti, Luigi Pellegrin, Franco Albini, Giovanni Michelucci, Mario Ridolfi and Carlo Mollino are just a few of the 35 featured architects whose designs, published and supported by Zevi, accompanied his career in over 50 years of critical, militant activity.
Therefore, the volume represents both a new overview of Italian architecture from the post-war years through to the end of the 20th century and an opportunity to spotlight Zevi’s extensive criticism and writing, his political and social passion and his presence in the civic history of the country.
