Architectural Culture in Translation: Postwar Italian Cities and African Villages

The project, developed in connection with Columbia University and the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America  (USA), explores the post-World War II Italian theory of the city as a translation of African architectural traditions. The research focuses on the key role that sub-Saharan heritage played in the development of Italian architecture and planning design after World War II.

This research is supported by the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America based in New York city (USA).
