An exhaustive monograph on the eminent architect, emblematic of Milanese, and also Italian, 20th-century architectural and figurative culture.

Celebrated in the 1930s, controversial and forgotten during the postwar period, and finally rediscovered today, Piero Portaluppi was an undisputed protagonist of 20th-century Italian architecture. An eclectic protagonist who steered clear of specific styles and schools, a master of hydroelectric architecture, and a great town planner whose projects changed the face of Milan.

Produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Piero Portaluppi, this new exhaustive monograph comprises a large photo album with new colour images of Portaluppi's architectural projects and interiors, taken by the well-known photographer Ciro Frank Schiappa; three previously unpublished essays, illustrated with vintage photos by Antonio Paoletti; views and models of Portaluppi's projects; items documenting his personal interests (cartoons, diagrams, sundials, postcards, newspaper cuttings.)

The volume also features an interview with Portaluppi's nephew, architect Piero Castellini, by the famous film director Luca Guadagnino; an unpublished essay by architect Paolo Portoghesi; a biography of Piero Portaluppi by Jacopo Ghilardotti; a list of works and a bibliography compiled by Ferruccio Lupi, conservator at Fondazione Piero Portaluppi.
