Francesco Gnecchi Ruscone

Although having deep roots in Milan, as expressed by his many buildings in the city and his affectionate interest in its architectural and town planning events,  Gnecchi-Ruscone is profoundly international due to his training and experience matured in England, France and Africa: a characteristic which distinguishes him from the majority of architects of his generation.
The archive, which covers the period from 1947 to 2003, allows for a complete reconstruction of the architect’s vast and versatile career, including residential and public architecture, town planning, restoration, interior design, exhibition design, university lecturing (at the Politecnico of Milan and Yale) and design.
