Armando Ronca, Modern architecture in South Tyrol, 1935–1970 (exhibition)

Amongst South Tyrol’s buildings of the immediate post-war years, the projects of Armando Ronca are of paramount importance. And although the modern architecture of this period was thought as a structural expression of a new beginning, the appreciation of it has been scarce. Yet, the often negative attitude towards the projects of this epoch slowly starts shifting towards an increasing awareness that also in this period notable achievements in terms of urban development and architecture have been made.
For the first time, an exhibition presents the works of Armando Ronca. Through it, the buildings of the Veronese architect should be moved into the focus of local historical research and stimulate a discussion about Meran and Bozen’s cityscapes in the 21st century.
