Synopsis

How to assess and how to restore the despised 20th-century

Starting with the case of Carbonia, there are numerous other case of the redevelopment of modern towns (Ivrea, Lyons, Crespi d'Adda, Schio). This book is a study of 20th-century towns: the protection of the landscape and the role of the institutions and cultural policies; the recognition of the modern heritage, overturning the often negative opinions about the architecture and urban planning of the last century. The new discipline of restoration shifts the focus from the individual building to the urban and social fabric.
