Architecture meets the school, Francesco Dal Co
Students of the upper secondary schools of Padua, Rovigo and the Provinces encounter architecture.
16 schools _ 783 students _ 59 chaperones
In a crowded Palazzo della Ragione, Francesco Dal Co, architectural historian, director of the magazine Casabella and Italian academic, captured the attention of those present and explained architecture, its importance and its evolution; he offered the students suggestions and provocations for subsequent studies and investigation, proposing various visions of architecture.
