Architetto in Bergamo e conservatore internazionale nel secondo Novecento
ITALIAN | ISBN: 9788857587592
The place from which one goes out and to which one returns is Bergamo, both for Sandro Angelini and for Sandro Scarrocchia, an Italian architectural historian and expert in the preservation of heritage. The architect Angelini was born in Bergamo in 1915, the son of the engineer Luigi, who beyond Bergamo has himself been a prominent figure in the architecture of the 20th century. Scarrocchia undertakes a long overdue examination and classification of Sandro Angelini’s work, paying tribute to Angelini as a protagonist not only of the Italian architectural and urban planning debate, but also of an international debate on the protection of monuments. The book shows Angelini as a designer, planner, and organizer, as well as a theoretician, restorer, preservationist, and bridge builder in the figurative sense.
