Ornamento e delitto
Italy, 1973, 40'
A documentary by Aldo Rossi together with Gianni Braghieri e Franco Raggi, directed by Luigi Dirussi, produced in 1973 in occasion of the XV Triennale di Milano. A Triennale that inaugurated two years and a half late, in a moment historically and culturally turbulent. Architecture and the City is the theme of the exhibit of which Aldo Rossi is the curator and fitter. This movie is an essay – it is linked to the book Architettura Razionale – transformed into images and it should be read with the goal of settling the project of the show in history, taking inspiration from a historic 1908 paper of Adolf Loos.
