The Living Museum. Franco Albini–BBPR–Lina Bo Bardi–Carlo Scarpa

The book offers an analysis of four museums by architectural historian Orietta Lanzarini, built between the 1940s and 1960s, and conceived by four of the most groundbreaking Italian architects of the 20th century. With different approaches and strategies, Franco Albini, BBPR, Lina Bo Bardi and Carlo Scarpa rethought and redesigned the Second World War’s museums and their purposes. Despite their intrinsic differences, the four case studies show how all these architects’ projects sought to achieve two common purposes: to make art education accessible to everyone and to highlight the value of history in building the present.
