Research project presentation: “Archivi di architettura a Reggio Emilia tra Ottocento e Novecento”
Given the success of the exhibition RE900 - Architettura del Novecento a Reggio Emilia, which had place last summer at Chiostri di San Domenico, Panizzi Library hosts a special meeting with direct and indirect experiences by the protagonists of the 20th century architecture in Reggio, on the occasion of the presentation event of the book “Architettura del Novecento a Reggio Emilia”, edited by Bruno Mondadori.
The city and the province of Reggio Emilia have a huge unknown heritage, represented by a large number of twentieth-century buildings of important architectural value. This book, the result of a long and scrupulous research, highlights it by looking at the evolution of Reggio architecture between fascism, Reconstruction, Postwar and economic boom, inserting the city in the context of the great twentieth century transformations.
