ARCHITECTURAL DOCUMENTS: ELEMENTS FOR MEMORY AND DAILY WORK
Conversation with Benedetto Besio, Francesca Imperiale and Lorenzo Ciccarelli
And presentation of THE POWER OF THE ARCHIVE. RENZO PIANO BUILDING WORKSHOP
Documentary film by the director Francesca Molteni, edited by Fulvio Irace.
The film stems from the idea of the Archive as a physical, but also a virtual place. In particular, archives linked to a professional practice like an architect’s studio, a deposit of mixed materials (drawings, models, correspondence, photographs, but also audio video materials, sound documents, etc.), which reflect the identity of the Architect and his/her way of thinking and working. Apart from the rationale of keeping things in order, however, this kind of archive is also something that can trigger new research, create pathways, arouse curiosity, cast doubts and uncertainties, generate interpretations and bring the content of history to the attention of future generations.
