Starting with recent exhibitions such as Recycling Beauty – in Fondazione Prada – Salvatore Settis talks about his role as curator and his relationship with architects such as Meier, Chipperfield and Koolhaas.

The disruptive entry of anthropologists, geographers, philosophers and political scientists into the debate on architecture contrasts with the disappearance of the professional critic or his renunciation of assuming the function of intellectual orientation that historians and critics once took on.
