Dario Passi. Forma Urbis

Architecture Archives Centre

Some of the emblematic works that sanctified Dario Passi’s abandonment of architecture in favour of painting

At the entrance to the Architecture Archives Centre are two large oil canvas paintings, recently acquired, that represent a kind of cultural legacy of Dario Passi, whose activity over time passed from architectural practice, always carried out through high quality graphic representations, to tout-court artistic creation.

An homage to the recently deceased architect and artist, made through the presentation of architectural drawings in which the unique use of the medium of painting is the instrument through which constructed reality is investigated and revealed.
