PLOT : The film is the portrait of two masters of Italian architecture,extremely different in training and vision, both in search of an architecture that transcends time: Aldo Rossi seemed to find the answers in the abstract thought of things, Carlo Scarpa in the concrete way of putting them into light.The part dedicated toAldo Rossi was also created inside the “Palazzo della Ragione”in Padua, where, in 2019, the exhibition “Aldo Rossi and Reason” was held. The past and memory, monuments and what remains of people’swork over time are among the dominant themes of the Milanese architect, the first Italian to receive the PritzkerArchitecturePrize in 1990, the so-called Nobel Prize for architecture. Aldo Rossi was a complex figure in the Italian architecture of the second half of the 1900s,also thanks to the importanceof his thought and theoretical elaboration, as well as to the impact that his writings have. In search of permanent values in architecture, he became a master for generations.
