Paolo Portoghesi

Paolo Portoghesi (Rome 1931) is the pugnacious advocate of a "rooted" architecture that interprets tradition not as a transfer of acquired habits, but as a stimulus to innovation in the continuity of some premises that express the identity of human places and cultures. His best known work is the Rome Mosque. Among his recent works: the churches of Santa Maria della Pace in Terni, the Saints Cornelio and Cipriano in Calcata and San Francesco in Castellaneta, the Latin Quarter of Treviso, the Renaissance District I in Rome, the Great Mosque in Strasbourg, the Park Urbano di Abano, the cemetery of Cesena, the laboratories of the "Città della Speranza" in Padua.In the design field he designed furniture and objects for Alessi, Arzberg, Atelier Sedap, Cemusa, Frigerio, Meccani, Mirabili, Cleto Munari, Poltronova, Ritzenhoff Cristal, Swid Powell and others.He is professor emeritus at the University of La Sapienza, and has received three honorary degrees. He was president of the Accademia di S. Luca, is an Academician of the Lincei and a member of numerous international academies.His most important books are: Roma Barocca (1966, new edition expanded in 2011); F.
