La finestra del poeta (The window of the poet)
Prints 1973–97

26 June–15 November 2015

Opening: Thursday 25 June, 18–20h

The Netherlands


At the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Aldo Rossi’s “Museo di Maastricht,” the Bonnefantenmuseum presents and documents its collection of 100 prints by the Italian architect and artist, together with drawings and paintings from private collections.

Between 1973 and 1997, Rossi created a body of works that breathed new life into the genre of the architectural print. They are poetic in their play on visual associations, and give a personal view of the world of the architect.

The exhibition and the book Aldo Rossi. La finestra del poeta “Opera Grafica” 1973–97 are the result of wide-ranging research, carried out by the Bonnefantenmuseum in close collaboration with the Fondazione Aldo Rossi. Various academic institutions such as Istituto Centrale per la Grafica and Van Eyck have offered their scientific support. This international project received financial support from the Mondriaan Fund and Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Amsterdam. After Maastricht, the exhibition will travel on to Archizoom of Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne and to GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo.
