Andrea Branzi “Il Dolce Stil Novo (della Casa)” was published in 1991 on the occasion of a very special exhibition featuring works by Lapo Binazzi, Denis Santachiara, Shiro Kuramata, Andrea Branzi, Ettore Sottsass Jr., Massimo Iosa Ghini, Remo Buti, George Sowden, and Borek Sipek. The book collects the reflections of this group of architects of different ages, cultures and backgrounds who were called upon to realize a group of domestic landscapes in the large empty rooms of Palazzo Strozzi Firenze. “Auto-biographical, poetic or theoretical reflections take the viewer and reader to the central point of the project in question: a person’s home. That is, our survival within the artistic universe that surrounds us, within the violence and the vulgarity of our times, in the expropriation and eradication of intrusive streams of information. Building a house for man means building a place and objects within it which make is possible to establish relationships not only of use and functionality, but also of a psychological, symbolic, and poetic nature. Holderlin said, “Man lives poetically,” which means the relationship that binds man to his nest is of a nature, literary, partly obscure, and symbolic.” – translated roughly from the Italian introduction by Andrea Branzi, 1990.
This very handsome book compiled by Branzi himself feels more like an artist’s book than an exhibition catalogue, beautifully reproducing intimate drawings, texts, conversations, photographs by the contributors, and printed in an edition of 1250 numbered copies. This copy is number stamped no. 830.
