Roma Interrotta (Rome Interrupted) by Aaron Betsky
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1978, twelve internationally renown architects gathered around the project Roma Interrotta: based on the map of Rome drawn in 1784 by Gian Battista Nolli, the last architectural planning for the Eternal City, the architects reinterpreted the city with a critical view towards what had been built and destroyed throughout the centuries. The projects were exhibited in Rome in 1978 and then travelled around the world. In 2008, the project was revived and inspired the theme of the Bienniale Architecture in Venice. This book collects the texts and images of the original projects/exhibition, plus the texts written for the Biennale 2008 by Aaron Betsky (Director of the Biennale Architecture), Graziella Lonardi (Director and Founder of Incontri Internazionali d'Arte) and Architect Piero Sartogo, who organised the project in 1978. The collection of drawings will soon be donated to MAXXI, the Museum for Contemporary Art and Architecture in Rome. It includes projects by Piero Sartogo, Costantino Dardi, Antoine Grumbach, James Stirling, Paolo Portoghesi, Romaldo Giurgola, Robert Venturi, Colin Rowe, Michael Graves, Leon Krier, Aldo Ross and Robert Krier.
