This continues the report on the upcoming SOLERI exhibition, ETHICS AND URBAN INVENTIVNESS. More excerpts from the exhibition catalog:

This initiative intends to fill a gap in the Italian cultural horizon, which has only recently become aware of Soleri’s importance and international acclaim as an architect, urban planner, and philosopher. The first signs of adequate recognition of Soleri’s position in 20th Century global architecture include the Golden Lion Award [17th of June 2000] on occasion of the 7th International Architectural Exhibition during the Venice Biennale, and a rich monographic book from Architect Iolanda Lima [Jaca Book, 2000]. An exhibition on Paolo Soleri will interest researchers, architects, and the general public, as indicated not only by the immediate response of involved institutions, but also by the extensive public attention to the initiatives, conventions, and workshops promoted during Soleri’s recent visits to Italy. Among other events related to Soleri in 2005 are the realization of a massive concrete and bronze sculpture in Vietri sul Mare [Salerno Providence] and the declaration of the Solimene Ceramic Factory, the only work ever completed in Italy [1952-1954], as a cultural landmark.
