Architetti d’Italia, Bruno Zevi, il narratore Architects of Italy, Bruno Zevi, the narrator
Bruno Zevi's vision of history of architecture epitomizes history of freedom. He re-writes it right as history of freedom far from any historicism or ortodox academic approach, in the light of new concepts as crisis, values, space, and language. It would have been logic to consider the category of freedom according to avant-garde movements of the early 20s', but Zevi's innovative methodology attributes freedom to architects such as F. Ll. Wright, Brunelleschi, Palladio, Michelangelo and Borromini. The historian is in continuous search of a modernity always in fieri, to such an extent that we can state he is the giant who was able to generate a new vision of history of architecture, by creating a significant and consequent fil-rouge between architecture of prehistory and the contemporary one. His interpretation of architecture has also a strict relation with the political engagement, in which Zevi was involved during his entire lifetime. Thus, if we want to write about architecture, analyse it, interpret it, we can never forget the debt we have toward the brilliant Roman historian.
