Il Poligrafo, 2020
Italian architect Ignazio Gardella (1905-1999) has been, since the 1930s, at the center of a rich critical literature, marked by contributions from great scholars and architects. Multiple studies have identified the elements that characterize his work, such as the relationship with the techniques of composition, history, contexts and cities. Less known and more open to experimentation is the research on interior space, which pervades the entire span of his career. The other architectures referred to in this volume not only allude to deal with the original or minor aspects, perhaps not fully understood and sometimes overlooked, but also the possibility of adding investigative material. The aim is to better understand the process of Gardella’s compositional elaboration, starting from the projects for the interiors, through the stable exhibition arrangements or the ephemeral installations.
