Villa La Saracena, designed and built between 1955 and 1957 on the Tyrrhenian coast of Santa Marinella (near Rome), marked the fulfillment of the professional development of Luigi Moretti (1907-1973). This book covers in detail the design history of this architectural masterpiece and offers an original interpretation based on the critical categories of the “Mediterranean”, the Baroque and the Informal, which fuelled a lively cultural debate in the fifties. It brings out the dominant role of the building’s interior space, which creates both the form and structure and determines the surface variations and modulations of the play of light, distinctive transmutations of matter that constantly stir the viewer’s emotional responses.
With a preface by Bruno Reichlin.

This volume has grown out of the international conference "Cosa è architetto. Domenico Fontana tra Melide, Roma e Napoli (1543-1607)", held in Mendrisio in autumn 2007. It was an important opportunity to take stock of the state of knowledge about Domenico Fontana, famous above all for the design of obelisks, whose work opened the era of the predominance of Ticinese architects on the Roman scene.

The essays are by Antonio Becchi, Anna Bedon, Federico Bellini, Costanza Caraffa, Maurizia Cicconi, Giovanna Curcio, Sabina de Cavi, Giovanni Di Maio, Francesco Paolo Fiore, Margherita Fratarcangeli, Fulvio Lenzo, Paolo Mascilli Migliorini, Nicola Navone, Maria Raffaella Pessolano, Isabella Salvagni, Grete Stefani, Letizia Tedeschi, Christof Thoenes, Manuel Vaquero Pineiro, Sergio Villari.

The first issue of the “Quaderni dell’Accademia di architettura”, a periodical which presents contributions and testimonies of the school’s many activities (not just its teaching), is devoted to the recovery of the architectural heritage. This theme, of particular relevance to the contemporary design scene, is explored by scholars, who shed light on the relevant theoretical, historical and social factors, and by architect-professors who, through the presentation of a number of their projects, highlight the different strategies of intervention in the built.

Texts by Bruno Reichlin, Franz Graf, Bernhard Furrer, Claude Raffestin, Bruno Pedretti, Roberta Grignolo.

Luigi Canonica 1764-1844. Architetto di utilità pubblica e privata, Mendrisio Academy Press

The Ticinese architect Luigi Canonica was employed by Napoleon in the years running from the Cisalpine Republic to the Kingdom of Italy and was again active at the Restoration. This book combines a monographic approach, aimed at the reconstruction and critical study of all of Canonica’s works, with an organization by major topics, such as his contribution to the process of urban renewal in Milan (he was the author, among other projects, of Foro Bonaparte and the Arena and drafted the first ever master plan for the city), his achievements in the architecture of gardens, villas, theaters and municipal buildings (such as the Villa Reale and Palazzo Reale in Milan and the Villa Reale with its park in Monza), and his role in the organization of offices for the control of architectural projects.

Reflecting this organization, the book presents essays by scholars and historians together with some 200 analytical entries devoted to specific works written by other specialists.

Giulio Minoletti (1910-1981), architect, urban planner and designer, is highly representative of the different phases of the 20th century in Italy. This handy format photographic book presents the interiors of five apartments in Milan. These are projects on which the architect impressed his personal hallmark, with the focus on aspects a that characterized his entire oeuvre: a concern for the relation between interiors and exteriors, the fluidity of space, the flexibility of internal divisions, accurate detailing, technological innovations and a careful choice of materials.

Texts by Alberto Bassi, Maria Cristina Loi, Elena Triunveri.

Like many of their fellow countrymen, the architects Visconti, Ruggia and Staffieri pursued fame and fortune in the Russia of the tsars, following the trail blazed at the dawn of the eighteenth century by Domenico Trezzini, the celebrated protagonist of the foundation of Saint Petersburg. Their vicissitudes appear between the lines of the letters sent to family, relatives and friends, brought together, fully annotated, in this volume to give a clear picture of the interweaving of family and professional relations in the context of Russian architecture and society.

It is true that the eighteenth century marks the entry of Russia into “European time” or, as Vittorio Strada writes in this book, «into the rhythm of a modernity that had found its origins in western Europe». But it is in the arts and, above all, in architecture, that the process is most remarkably evident. For between 1762, when Catherine II ascended the throne, and the death of her grandson Tsar Alexander I in 1825, the neoclassical style fully established itself and witnessed, in Russian architecture, an absolutely original interpretation. To that singular achievement Italian architectural culture made a major and multifarious contribution, which the present collection of essays seeks to explore.

The founding father of contemporary architecture in Ticino, Rino Tami (1908-1994) designed, when still very young, the Lugano Canton Library (1936-1940), the first excellent example of a modern public building in Ticino. In the Forties, organic architecture became a part of his wide cultural heritage. His professional maturity, attained in the Fifties and Sixties with public buildings (headquarters of the Italian Swiss Radio in Lugano) and private houses (Torre House in Lugano, Nadig House in Maroggia), coincided with his teaching commitment at the Zürich Polytechnic. From the Sixties he also held the post of supervisor of the architectural features along the Ticinese stretch of the Swiss motorway: tunnel entrances, bridges, portals, viaducts, embankment walls, service area buildings, public conveniences, storehouses, air shafts.
