Italo Rota

Category: Editorial

Year: 2023

The book is made up of 2 separate volumes held together by a band. The first, Only becoming Nature will save us, is a compendium of Italo Rota’s projects carried out between 2000 and 2023. Drawings, experiments, superimpositions, photographs, plans, sections, conceptual images and in-depth texts make up a personal and unconventional archive.

The second book, From the Earth to the Earth, showcases the architect’s vision, his spirituality and his tireless passion for research. An at times mystical publication, freely laid out in a sort of “fanzine”. 

The 2 books together thus best reflect the 2 souls of Italo Rota’s method and approach, rational and visionary, not only towards architecture but towards life itself.
