Antonio Monestiroli, Electa, Milano 2009 (pp. 77, € 24,00)
This is the first book in a series on the protagonists of the School of Milan. Edited by Antonio Monestiroli, the sries includes Franco Albini (author, Federico Bucci) and, in a near future, Asnago and Vender, BBPR, Piero Bottoni, Figini and Pollini. Handy and simple, this lightweight book has the virtue of prompting reflection on the work of Gardella, who was surrounded by a remarkable group of architects in 1950s’ Milan.
