      Milan Houses

      1923-1973. Fifty Years of residential Architecture in Milan. English Translation by Steve Piccolo

      There is mounting interest in the golden years of Milanese architecture – an age that spanned all the way from Giovanni Muzio’s early Ca’ Brutta experiments to the Modern Seventies.

      Milan Houses is the product of years of research by the authors and a Politecnico di Milano team led by them. Every building featured in the book comes with one or more pictures by Stefano Topuntoli or from archive material.

      With a foreword by Cino Zucchi – a renowned architect and scholar of Milanese architecture – the book includes two critical essays by the authors that place Milan’s golden age in the broader context of 20th-century architecture. A map is included with all the buildings’ locations.

      Rounding out the volume is a vast bibliography edited by Maurizio Grandi.

      The English translations of the texts can be found in the appendix.
