Lecture with Italo Rota on the non-existence of Italian suburbs

Italo Rota starts from the idea that Italian suburbs, very different from French ghettos and crushed in the density of cities and urbanisations continuous to each other (especially in North Italy), practically do not exist.

He proposes, among other things, the idea to bring back industrial labour to city centres, following a phenomenon already happening elsewhere.

During Salone del Mobile week in Milano, Verso will meet Italo Rota, one of the most famous Italian architects, and he will be exclusively interviewed by Simone Mosca.

Among the many works created internationally, Casa Italiana at Columbia University, New York (1997), …..

For Expo 2015 he designed and created Kuwait’s pavilion and curated the architectural direction of the exhibition Arts & Foods. Rituali dal 1851 that took place at Triennale during the Expo.

He’s also the author of the book Cosmologia Portatile, published by Quodlibet.
