People tend to comment on that which they know or that which they have seen and want to know more about, or that which disturbs them.

Tell us about current, future, or past architecture by Italians, or architecture in Italy. This could range from those Paul Malo mentioned in his post, to historical figures like Bernini and Michelangelo, to architectural wonders like Brunelleschi's Foundling Hospital or his San Lorenzo in Florence, Alberti's Sta Maria Novella, Bramante's domes, Palladio's villa's...

We could discuss Nervi's concrete dome in the Palazzo dello Sport, Rome 1958. The possibilities seem endless.

How about a discussion of the excesses of Roccoco exuberance? Is the surface embelishments of the Renaissance really any different from the exuberance of a Gehry facade in its iconoclastic effects?

Tell us more about current Italian architecture. What buildings would you like to present to us for comments and discussion?

What architecture are you familiar with that you would like us to know about? Lead the way and I'm sure you will find someone in this forum who will resond.
