This book is a homage to Bruno Zevi, the notable Italian architect, historian, writer, lecturer, critic, politician and designer. His anti-classical, modernist ideals inspired many an architect who followed him. This collection of essays, produced for an exhibition at MAXXI curated by Pippo Ciorra and Jean-Louis Cohen, tracks the influence of Zevi's ideas in Italian architecture.

Moreover, it is a reflection on the contemporary Italian architectures that Zevi supported and promoted during his 50-year career through his extensive writing and criticism. Featuring 35 architects, the book’s drawings, models, and other visual materials clarify the key role Zevi played in the post-war architectural debate in Italy, highlighting the importance of the relationship between architecture and politics and his social passion and presence in the nation’s civic history.
