Radical. The memories and practice of a visionary architecture and its translation in the Roman context, between imagination and movement. References to the economic boom of the 1960s, the youth movements and the pursuit of a new costume, "new spaces" for a "new time". An architecture of the moment, which was able to anticipate, interpret and innovate through the "train of history". Brutal. The signs of an architecture made of concrete, the Roman interpretation of the brutalist experience in Europe, a new way of conceiving residential and work spaces, between research and material experimentation.
