      Overview

      From 1945 to the 21st century, Milan’s architecture has given the city a truly unique international vibe. The book features 150 critical sheets, drawings and original photographs that retrace the history of an Italian way to modernity.

      In the book, a pool of authoritative scholars and designers critically examine the most significant buildings (residential buildings, offices, monuments and churches) designed by famous Italian and foreign architects who, over the last 75 years, have given Milan an important role on the international scene, making it an open-sky museum of modern and contemporary architecture.

      The refined photography by Sosthen Hennekam (a highly appreciated designer and photographer in the world of architecture), the redesigned plans of the buildings and the city maps give the book a technical and aesthetic quality in the finest tradition of Hoepli publications on similar subjects.
