Feature 2:
Carlo Scarpa in Verona
 
This issue features three significant works by Carlo Scarpa in Verona, Italy: Castelvecchio Museum (19581975), The Banca Popolare di Verona (19731981) and Casa Ottolenghi (19741978). We had the opportunity to photograph these three works of Scarpa in 2009. These detailed photographs of Scarpas treatment of stucco, concrete, stone, wood and iron illustrate the challenges he set and solved in his search for new ways to work with materials.
In her essay, Alba Di Lieto explains the importance of close attention to Scarpas drawings. Scarpa regarded drawing as a device for the graphic transfer of his thinking. He was fond of the sayings draw to see and no day without a line, reflecting his conviction that daily exercise is necessary for every artist, as advocated by tradition. Together with a selection of new photographs, this issue reproduces many of the original drawings for these three works.
We would like to express our special thanks to the owners who kindly allowed their buildings to be photographed. We are also indebted to Alba Di Lieto, manager of the Carlo Scarpa Archive, which houses Scarpas original drawings.(a+u)
