Starting from Mario Botta’s San Carlino in Lugano – a homage to Borromini but also a synthesis of artistic, scientific and ethical values – this book is a dialogue developed between architecture, philosophy and history of art.

In it is reproduced the complete series of atelier drawings prepared by Botta for the realisation of that work.

With the passing of time, words depart from their original meaning and end up clothing an undesirable ambiguity very close, as the author of this dictionary discloses, to the hypocrisy of those still using them.
