Paolo Scrivano (Politecnico di Milano)

What role do national narratives play in the transnational processes of cultural exchange? Do they limit or support the transmission of knowledge?

The contacts between Italian and British architectural cultures in the postwar years offer the opportunity to explore these questions and advance some possible answers.
