Aldo Rossi at Palazzo della Ragione

Aldo Rossi is the focus of a new exhibition in Padua, held in a historical building that well represents the Milanese architect’s humanistic vision of Archetypes – that is, the recurrent references to existing urban forms that can make new designs innovative and traditional at the same time.

“Aldo Rossi and la Ragione. Architectures 1967-1997” is indeed being held in the title’s Palazzo della Ragione, highlighting the symbolic value of an urban architecture that was able to renew itself over the centuries, while still maintaining its formal identity intact.

The exhibition is curated by Cinzia Simioni and Alessandro Tognon with the Aldo Rossi Foundation, and will be open until 29 September – inviting visitors along a timeline from the 1960s to the 1990s, across over 150 original works including sketches, paintings, drawings and models.

No less than 34 architectures are showcased – from the San Cataldo Cemetery in Modena to the “Il Palazzo” hotel and restaurant in Fukuoka (1987-1989), from the Monument in honor of the Partisans in Segrate to the project for a competition for the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin, from the “Salvatore Orrù” elementary school in Fagnano Olona to the rebuilding of the La Fenice theater in Venice – alongside a number of designer objects, documents, photographs and films.
