“A space that moves may mean a country that moves”.
Maurizio Sacripanti

In movement, pulsating, enclosed by an envelope that mutates in an unpredictable, living way: Maurizio Sacripanti’s entry for the Competition for the Italian Pavilion at the Osaka ’70 International Exposition.

On show will be drawings, photographs, documents, a model and video interviews devoted to the pavilion space in order to explore the poetic and the design processes of a great architect.

MAXXI has devoted monographic exhibitions to Carlo Scarpa, Luigi Moretti, Pier Luigi Nervi, Ludovico Quaroni, Giovanni Michelucci, Michele Valori and Alessandro Anselmi since 2010. In this context, a tribute to Maurizio Sacripanti as the centenary of his birth approaches is essential.

In collaboration with Accademia Nazionale di San Luca
