From an idea by Lucia Bosso

Four meetings for an in-depth study of the symbolic relationship between architecture, its designer, and the photographer who portrayed it

This is the second edition of a series of meetings that, starting from the photographic reading of a project, highlights some of the most interesting contemporary Italian authors who have been able to create a building, a significant place for the territory and the community, and to interpret it photographically, amplifying its perception and the underlying meanings.

What can we learn about architecture through a photo?

The direct testimonies of architects and photographers, moderated by the director of Abitare, Silvia Botti, allow us to delineate unexpected interpretative paths and acquire a new awareness of the culture of the image that we feed on.

During the first event, we will meet the architecture firm it’s. The firm, with offices in Rome, Geneva, and Paris, was founded in 2016 by Alessandro Cambi, Francesco Marinelli, and Paolo Mezzalama and is focused on research and innovation. The objective of the firm is to extend the boundaries of architecture by hybridizing its methods with the know-how from other sectors to evolve its skills and offer innovative services.
