The book

La recita dell'architetto

by Giorgio Scianca and Steve Della Casa

When cinema and architecture meet, here it comes a book that shows the indissoluble link between buildings, the characters who populate them and the professionals who design them. A collection of 1523 films, divided into decades, from silent movie to today. 12 chapters with many stories, famous films but also new discoveries that international interlocutors have suggested to the authors. The first century of modern architect’s life in the history of cinematography narrated by Giorgio Scianca with the disenchanted irony of the cinephile and the architect’s encyclopedic precision.
