Modern Milan

Milan in the XXth century lives in an extraordinary architectural experience that accompanies the Italian cultural and historical events. The avant-garde art, the Second World War, the emergence of design and fashion, the economic boom, were always accompanied by a continuous evolution of architecture that acquires a unique style for Milan.

The return to the order of Piero Portaluppi and Giovanni Muzio is the basis for the cultural experience of modernity that spreads in Milan among its most significant protagonists such as Giò Ponti, Giuseppe Terragni, Mario Pagano, and Piero Bottoni.

The second half of the XXth century, the period of reconstruction and expansion of Milan, sees an evolution of modern architecture by Luigi Moretti, Ignazio Gardella and group BBPR (Belgiojoso, Banfi, Peressutti, Rogers) that lead to the definition of a real Milanese style, between continuity and innovation in research and expressive use of technology. Sons of this culture are the works of Luigi Caccia Dominioni, the group Asnago and Vender, Vico Magistretti and other architects who participated in the architectural adventure of Milan.
