closed Dentro la strada novissima

The show

The First International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale curated by Paolo Portoghesi opened on 27 July 1980, and was entitled La Presenza del Passato [The Presence of the Past].
During this Biennale, Paolo Portoghesi proposed the exhibition La Strada Novissima, that involved 20 international architects who created 20 life-size facades to activate a reflection on the theme of the road and create a concrete image of a different way of thinking about architecture.

Today the MAXXI, after almost forty years, returns to reflect on this theme with the great exhibition The Street. Where the world is made, and the same Portoghesi curates DENTRO LA STRADA NOVISSIMA an in-depth focus on this crucial moment in the history of twentieth century architecture, which started the international discussion on postmodernism. The Focus will be held at the Architecture Archive Centre from 7 December 2018 to 28 April 2019.
