Mantovarchitettura, the publication that documents the initiative of the same name organized by the staff at the Polo di Mantova del Politecnico di Milano, is now in its second year, seeking, once again, to encourage open dialogue between teachers and students, in a perspective based on the value of history as a land on which the designing of living spaces can be cultivated.
A two-sided book collects both the results of the works carried out in 2015 as well as a preview of the major events taking place this year. Five sextodecimos of matte paper for lectures held in 2015 by leading international architects such as Eduardo Souto de Moura, Carlos Ferrater and Rafael Moneo, for a comparison of Italian schools of architecture and to share the experience of the “Architettura e Storia” exhibition (May 2015). A further five sextodecimos of glossy paper outline the tale of a new expository research project “Arte e Architettura. Punti di Vista” (6 May-6 June 2016 at Casa del Mantegna in Mantua).
