curated by Paolo Portoghesi

An insight on 1980 exhibition which started the international debate on post-modern

Among archive documents, pictures, project drawings and direct testimonies,a physical and hystorical path, which allows to end up dentro la Strada Novissima): a collective experience orchestrated byPaolo Portoghesi /em> on the occasion of the First international architectural exhibition of the Venice Biennale, which opened to the public on 27th July 1980 and was entitled La Presenza del Passato (The Presence of the Past).

The Strada Novissima was motivated by the desire to propose a reflection on the urban street through a 70-meter path, ten façades of full scale houses per side, designed by just as many architects including Frank O. Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Hans Hollein, Franco Purini, Arata Isozaki, Robert Venturi, Ricardo Bofill, GRAU.

On the occasion of the big exhibition La Strada, we propose an insight on this crucial moment of the architectural history of the Nineties, when the street became the concrete image of a different way to conceive architecture, definitively overcoming the dogmas of the Modern Movement.
