PIER LUIGI NERVI E IL FERRO-CEMENTO
Anno: Dicembre, 1994
Claudio Greco’s book explores Nervi’s training and early career, spanning from 1913, when he graduated in Bologna, to the inauguration of Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Turin, in 1948. With the aid of extensive archive investigation (Domus, December 1994), the author brings together the threads of the extraordinary and determined experimental research that attained its most mature and balanced results around 1950. Greco also redeems the most famous buildings from the ambiguous interpretation – starting with the engineer’s own writings – that had presented them mainly as the brilliant product of a nebulous exchange between science and art.
