Cersaie 2009: Conferences and Seminars
Man and the city

Friday 02 October - 2.00 p.m.
Galleria dell'Architettura

Men and women of the near future, living physically at close quarters in cities, yet isolated from one another, who only encounter each other in passing, on their way about their business, without ever really connecting. Men and women thousands of miles away who communicate without ever physically meeting up. Men and women on the move, in a world where no one ever sits still or stays put any more, a world with no borders. What will our cities come to look like, as groups of multi-ethnic communities are constantly migrating, shifting, evolving?

Italo Rota More

Italo Rota

Biographical notes
Italo Rota is eclectic personality of the contemporary architecture. He is one of the most charming Italian architect and designer for his experimentation in the field of setting: he conceives surprising devices and temporarily structures of extraordinary effectiveness, he creates scenery and magical ambiences that go with exhibitions and events.
Distinctive features of Studio Rota & Partners are the richness of forms, colours, materials. This accumulation of means – including the characteristic using of light, curvatures, bold bent lines -gives the designs the impression of multidimensionality, merging of spaces, movement. Interiors, objects, everyday items appear to be incredibly vivid and full of life.
