Architecture in Italy typically makes one think of Renaissance and Baroque and of buildings such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Milan Cathedral Duomo or the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

Around the turn of the 20th century Italy saw the birth and crystallization of modern architecture now to be admired between other at EUR District in Rome.

The last 2 decades have seen a growing trend towards revitalizing cities with contemporary architecture and urban planning. Many famous national and international architects such as: Renzo Piano, Carlo Scarpa and Aldo Rossi, Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Oscar Niemeyer and Richard Meier have designed buildings of note. These projects are vehicles to promote Italy as a country of innovation as much as they are stand-alone tourist attractions.

The new entry will be in April where a transparent dome by Architect M. Fuksas will cover e new metro station in the city center of Naples.

Other great examples are: Maxxi, Auditorium Parco della Musica, Ara Pacis, The Cloud and Jubelee Church in Rome, City Life, Porta Nuova and Feltrinelli in Milan, Auditorium Niemeyer in Ravello, Kilometro Rosso in Bergamo, the Messner Mountain Museum in the Dolomites.

We design tours with architects and designers for our clients with special interests in architecture.
