Architecture and Fine Art Photography
Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 18:30  Corso Venezia 14, Milan showroom De Padova

As part of the exhibition Posed Architectures - The works of Vico Magistretti in Milan and Fondazione studio museo Vico Magistretti and De Padova invite you for the conversation Architecture and Fine Art Photography with Giovanna Calvenzi and Fulvio Irace.

"The architecture is easy," Alvar Aalto once said (1963) to his students of the Polytechnic of Milan. A lie, of course, that hid his innate ability to seek a balance in the future.

Is it easy to photograph architecture? If you see photos of Gabriele Basilico in the studio museum exhibition, the answer may be the same: but it would also be a author paradox that hides the long waiting times before the fatal shooting, the spasmodic observation of the sky to determine the time of the crucial final pose. How did Basilico photograph? Which was his vision of urban architecture, what attracted the concern of his predatory eye to the point that it has become the leading interpreter of Milan of the twentieth century?

Giovanna Calvenzi, photography historian and curator of the Studio Gabriele Basilico, and Fulvio Irace, historic architecture at the Milan Polytechnic will discuss about these.
