Abstract

[automatically translated] The double key of reading a book - on the design and Italian rationalism - is a reflection of a desire for joint research and precise, which delves into the motivations and outcomes of Italian architecture in the years before World War II and the implications arising from 'use of the design in the same years. The survey on the works of V Milan Triennale of 1933 through drawing, in fact, implies a reflection on the cognitive potential of this tool. At that time the sketch acquires its autonomy: no longer simple representation, is the extension of thought, essential in the development of ideas. According to this tradition, Francesco Maggio and Marcella Villa watch / observe / they see: through the (re) design. Their gaze is directed to the works that no longer exist today, You are having been demolished after the exhibition, and that the reader may not know by direct experience. The innovative logic that were expressed by the V Triennale houses are reconstructed and analyzed by three-dimensional models, plans and elevations. But be careful, warns Francesco Maggio, the "translation" proposal should be compared with the original project, to understand where the redesign betrays what he says. This is because the graphic restitution comes from mediation between subjective thoughts of the author and the objectivity of an external reality. Therefore, the (re) design can only express something new compared to the original to which it refers. It is an interpretation which will in turn become the architectural idea, describable by further drawing. and that the reader may not know by direct experience.
