Little Italy


Little Italy


Constructing and activating a network of architects so to produce new understandings of architecture
File under

Little Italy is a proactive research project aimed at initiating a public discussion around the principal traits of the generation of Italian architects who, like the two curators, were born in the 1980s, by mapping and investigating the most interesting practices that are currently tackling architecture from a diversity of points of view. It is urgent to collect and highlight the specific themes, methodologies, networks, and concerns of an age group whose identity has been shaped by three fundamental transitions - a geographical (from Italy to Europe), a mediatic (from paper to the Internet) and an economic one (from growth to recession) - so to better understand its contemporary condition, and therefore foresee its possible futures. Little Italy is a long-term project started in October 2017 and organized in several phases to produce different outcomes (in-depth survey and interviews, publication, public debates, itinerant conferences and exhibition).
