Architect, sculptor, painter, brilliant thinker of his time, the creator of an architecture based on social needs, one of the fathers of modern town planning and a master of the Modern Movement: Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as Le Corbusier.

MAXXI Architettura, directed by Margherita Guccione, is focusing on this figure with Le Corbusier e l’Italia, curated by Marida Talamona and realised in partnership with the Fondation Le Corbusier, Paris.

With 320 original documents and 300 photographs in an exhibition that, adopting a chronological and thematic format, presents the influence of Italy on the training and work of the master; from the first trips early in the 20th century to the unbuilt projects for the Olivetti Electronic Calculation centre at Rho, and the hospital in Venice from the 1960s.
