An urban lantern in wood and glass in Norway, a structure for collecting water in Ethiopia, the MoMA in Chengdu, China, a museum in a tunnel for submarines in Albania, a house that blends into the landscape in Israel, not to mention Brazil, the United States, Russia and Germany: Erasmus Effect. Italian Architects Abroad is an exhibition composed of journeys, experiences and returns and telling the stories of the many Italian architects to have found success abroad.
The phenomenon of “migratory” Italian architecture, of designers who open their studios abroad and who establish themselves as respected professionals of international standing is not new: from the pioneers such as Lina Bo Bardi in Brazil or Romaldo Giurgola in the USA and later in Australia through to Renzo Piano and Massimiliano Fuksas, who have built abroad the success that has allowed them to come to the fore in Italy.
