Photos of more than a hundred Italian Brutalist buildings in a new book

Photographers Roberto Conte and Stefano Perego traveled across the Italian peninsula for five years documenting the buildings built between the 60s and 80s.

The brand new book Brutalist Italy, by the architectural photographers Roberto Conte and Stefano Perego and published by FUEL, offers a selection of more than 100 Italian brutalist buildings through 146 images.

For five years the two photographers have traveled more than 20 thousand km through Italy to document the great variety of buildings constructed between the 60s and 80s, from the House of the Port of Naples to the cemetery of Jesi, from the Sanctuary of Monte Grisa in Trieste to the “Washing Machines” of Genoa.

As he writes in his introduction to the book, Adrian Forty, professor emeritus of the History of Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture - University College of London: Italian architects have distinguished themselves from their colleagues abroad for the desire to recognize that concrete could refer to more than one era, not only the future, or the present, but also the past.
