L'ultimo Grand Tour

In the Italian territory central architectural and cultural themes have been developed and discussed in an exemplary and often universal way. In an international publication the specific aspects of historical and contemporary Italy will be reflected following the tradition and in part the itinerary of the classic Grandtour. Through interviews, essays, graphic representations, and photographs, the themes of contemporary Italy will be subject of analysis and critical reflection.
These different approaches to the Italian territory are intended as constituent elements of a broader question: from "Learning from Italy" to a "Rethinking Italy" in the fields of architecture, urbanism and culture in general. Which phenomena of contemporary Italy can offer answers to questions of a global dimension?
