Aldo Rossi – the world-renowned architect – is the focus of a major retrospective at MAXXI that analyses the extraordinary theoretical and practical contribution of this “unusual architect” in the reconstruction of Berlin and the debate about Barcelona. Rossi places his studies within a broader tradition of national analytical culture and in relation to the most pressing issues of urban contemporary life.

Cultural projects, architectural projects, domestic set-ups, and projects are the three main drivers of a complex, multifaceted history involving training, research, and education, and critique. Materials from the MAXXI Architecture archive as well as archives and collections from all over the world are on display: famous drawings, projects, writings, and a spectacular series of models, a kind of imaginary city, tangle of ideas, images, places, identities, and memory.
