Postscript by Vincent Scully
Based on notebooks composed since 1971, Aldo Rossi's memoir intermingles his architectural projects, including discussion of the major literary and artistic influences on his work, with his personal history. His ruminations range from his obsession with theater to his concept of architecture as ritual. The illustrations—photographs, evocative images, as well as a set of drawings of Rossi's major architectural projects prepared particularly for this publication—were personally selected by the author to augment the text.
