Instructions for living in the city

An interesting overview of the work of Ugo La Pietra curated by Italo Tommasoni, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio and Giancarlo Partenzi, which traces the multiple fields of investigation of the architect, designer, teacher, editor, researcher and tireless experimenter. The concept of the exhibition is that of a "continuum of form and time," subdivided into thematic groups with his most significant works and the related documents within the urban space. Twelve areas of research are preceded by "Instructions" that give visitors the key to interpreting the works. An interesting opportunity to touch the multiplicity of the results of the research done by Ugo La Pietra, an eclectic and versatile artist, explorer of unusual routes, always a supporter of artistic craftsmanship.
