Description - Italia 61 by Sergio Pace

The first in a new series, Contemporary Architecture in Turin, that reconstructs the complex topography of places, buildings, architects, techniques and styles in Turin throughout the 20th century. A collection of small histories that helps identify future scenarios for a city that has unobtrusively embraced the 21st century. The theme of this book is the nation on show, featuring the personalities and legends heralding the centenary of the Unification of Italy. The buildings of Italia '61, from the Palazzo del Lavoro to the Palavela, were for many years regarded as incongruous within the cultural and urban context of Turin. With the 2006 Winter Olympics, they enjoyed a revival, albeit of an often paradoxical sort. This is a chronicle of the events and people behind the construction of the exhibition area. What future should this group of buildings, extraordinary both in terms of sheer number and quality, have in the city? With the 2006 Winter Olympics now in the past, only time will tell
