The Living Museums. Franco Albini – BBPR – Lina Bo Bardi – Carlo Scarpa is an analysis of four museums by architectural historian Orietta Lanzarini. These museums were built between the 1940s and 1960s, and set up by some of the most groundbreaking Italian architects of the 20th century: Franco Albini, BBPR, Lina Bo Bardi and Carlo Scarpa. With different approaches and strategies, they rethought and redesigned the Second World War’s museums and their purposes. Despite their intrinsic differences, the four case studies show how all these architects’ projects sought to achieve two common purposes: to make art education accessible to everyone and to highlight the value of history in building the present.
