Course on Architecture and Urban Design

It will concern the same program of The Citadel Competition and will be open to students and graduates.
The works of the participants will be exhibited as the other ones, but hors concours .


All events will be publicised through appropriate channels. The collective exhibitions will be held from May to July 1999, together with the Seminar, the projections and related initiatives, in order to make it a major event in the city's life. The winning works will be presented to the Comune of Milan, with the intent of activating its cultural initiatives and the public acquisition of art works. The project will also be internationally publicised, by means of Internet and of direct information sent to all major architectural and art magazines. A bilingual Catalogue of the Workshop including a selection of the works submitted to the Competitions, and the contributions to the Seminar, will be published at the expenses of public and private Sponsors.


The Foundation

It is working in defence of an art concept, different to the one which prevails today: art as an expression of beauty, strength and destiny of the Soul and not only of the confusion which too often obscures it.
This commitment concerns also architecture, other forms of culture and the City, to which the Foundation attempts to give a contribution of study and creativity, coherently with its founder's ideas. If you wish to know more about them and to share the Foundation's activities, please do visit the other pages of our site.
