• ITALIANS DO IT BETTER: architecture

    Practically everyone in the world knows the most famous ancient Italian buildings. Those who have studied a little art history might even be familiar with Renaissance and Baroque Italian Architecture, and might even have heard the names of famous Italian architects like Brunelleschi, Borromini and Bernini. Many have probably also heard the names of famous modern Italian architects, like Massimiliano FUKSAS and Renzo PIANO. But very few people know that many of America's most beautiful buildings are a result of the creativity and tireless efforts of Italian architects.

The historic center Trani appears but a maze of tiny streets, Medieval churches, sculptures and Romanesque iconographies. The Swabian Castle, commissioned by Frederick II, stands on the sea, overlooking the city from its position next to the beautiful Cathedral, a typical example of Apulian Romanesque. The Cathedral stands atop two older churches, and preserves a bronze door by Barisano da Trani, the first sculptor to realize his work via bronze melting and reliefs. In the Middle Ages, Trani hosted on of the most important Jewish communities at the time; visitors can find its vestiges in the Giudecca quarter, admiring its four ancient synagogues.

#ARCHITECTURE Milan’s Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) has won the International Highrise Award 2014, from the City of Frankfurt. ————————— The International Highrise Award is given by the City of Frankfurt to honour structures that combine exemplary sustainability. Bosco verticale is residential development located close to the Porta Garibaldi train station in the city’s Porta Nuova area. The towers were designed by Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra . The two towers have a height of 119 and 87 metres and are correlated with the policies for reforestation and naturalization of the large urban and metropolitan borders (Metrosbosco) of the city of Milan. Metrobosco and Bosco Verticale are devices for the environmental survival of contemporary European cities. Together they create two modes of building links between nature and city within the territory and within the cities of contemporary Europe. With over 900 trees installed on terraces on the towers, there is over 10,000 square metres of forest. The plants serve to filter dust, pollen and pollution form the environment surrounding the towers, they act as sun shields in the summer months and weather shields in the winter, thus reducing heating and air conditioning costs. The building is equipped with Aeolian and photovoltaic energy systems and the trees will be watered by grey water produced by the tower. The other four finalists of the International Award include: - De Rotterdam, in Rotterdam, which, with a total area of approximately 160 000 sqm claims to be the largest building in Europe. - The One Central Park in Sydney, Australia is a residential/retail development that also strives to unite nature and the urban landscape in harmony. - Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel, previously Hotel Catalonia Plaza Europa, is a skyscraper and hotel in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Catalonia, Spain. - The Sliced Porosity Block, is a building complex in Chengdu, China. The design is shaped to give the surrounding residential neighbourhood enough daylight during the day. The angles of the sun prescribe the shape of the towers.

2013 from wikipedia: Mussolini created the city of Imperia on 21 October 1923 by the union of Porto Maurizio and Oneglia and the surrounding village communes of Piani, Caramagna Ligure, Castelvecchio di Santa Maria Maggiore, Borgo Sant'Agata, Costa d'Oneglia, Poggi, Torrazza, Moltedo and Montegrazie. Il Comune di Imperia è relativamente "giovane", essendo nato solo nel 1923. Per la storia precedente dei due rioni principali che lo costituiscono, vedi separatamente quelle di Porto Maurizio e Oneglia. The fascist style of architecture reflects the values of Fascism as a political ideology that developed in the early 20th century after World War I. The philosophy is defined by a strong nationalist people governed by a totalitarian government. With regards to morals, a fascist society views the nation and race as supreme, and considers them more important than the individual. A fascist nation purges all cultures and ideas not descending from the history of the national culture.[2] The vision of a strong, unified, and economically stable nation seemed appealing to western Europe after the physical and economic destruction after World War I, which contributed to the rise of fascism and corporatism. Fascist architecture became popular under Benito Mussolini's rule of Italy from 1922 to 1943. Within this period he transformed the Italian executive role from that of a prime minister to a dictatorship. A few years after his taking of office he was referred to as Il Duce (the leader). When Mussolini took office, he took on the role of bringing about fascism and idealism to replace democracy in Italy. He utilized all forms of media along with architectural identity. The new modernist style of architecture was one way to help build his vision of a unified fascist Italy. When Mussolini called for a fascist style of architecture, architects used the style to imitate that of imperial Rome and to bring historical pride and a sense of nationalism to the Italian people. Fascist architecture was one of many ways for Mussolini to invigorate a cultural rebirth in Italy and to mark a new era of Italian culture under fascism. Similarly, once Hitler came to power in 1933 and transformed the German Chancellory to a dictatorship, he used fascist architecture as one of many tools to help unify and nationalize Germany under his rule. Hitler had plans to rebuild Berlin after the axis powers won World War II under the name Germania, or Welthauptstadt Germania. Hitler had his favorite architect, Albert Speer, design this new metropolis using fascist architecture design. Fascist styled architecture is a branch of modernist architecture which became popular in the early 20th century. The fascist style was also greatly influenced by the rationalist movement in Italy in the 1920s. Rationalist architecture, with the help of Italian government support, celebrated the new fascist age of culture and government in Italy. In Nazi Germany, the extremely large and spacious Fascist architecture was one way envisioned by Hitler to unify Germany by designing structures for what he described as "mass experiences" in which thousands of citizens could gather and take part in the patriotism of community events and listen to speeches made by Adolf Hitler and other Nazi party leaders. The fascist style of architecture was very similar to the ancient Roman style. Fascist buildings were generally very large and symmetric with sharp non-rounded edges. The buildings purposefully conveyed a sense of awe and intimidation through their size, and were made of limestone and other durable stones in order to last the entirety of the fascist era. The buildings were also very plain with little or no decoration and lacked any complexity in design. These generalities of fascist architecture contributed to the simple aesthetics the edifices display. All these aspects helped the fascist dictatorships exhibit absolute and total rule of the population. Hitler and Mussolini used fascist architecture as another source of propaganda to display to the world the strength, pride, and power their regimes had.
