Rai, Tg2, section Mizar, report by Cristina Sanna Passino. Stefano Boeri remembers Vittorio Gregotti, an architect filled with curiosity and capable of crossing very different fields of knowledge, who leaves a huge void in the world of Italian architecture and culture.
Accurate, elegant and sophisticated, Gregotti was one of the great names of the twentieth century, undisputed master of the Italian intellectual debate; Professor at the Universities of Milan, Venice and Palermo and also urban planner, journalist, writer and director of Casabella for years, the architect is also remembered for his great ability to invite magazines, such Edilizia Moderna or Rassegna.
Urban sensibility and global vision are mixed with critical intelligence and are contained in its archive which houses over seven hundred projects, now left as a gift to the Center for Advanced Studies on Visual Arts at Castello Sforzesco. A wise explorer with the ability to convey the passion for architecture to young people, with the dream of being remembered as a contemporary Leon Battista Alberti.
