Neorealist Architecture: Aesthetics of Dwelling in Postwar Italy


After World War II, a wave of Italian films emerged that depicted the life and hardships of characters left helpless after the conflict, bringing to the screen the struggles of a time of existential angst and uncertainty.

This form of filmmaking was associated with a broader artistic phenomenon known as ‘neorealism’ and is now considered a pivotal point in the history of Italian cinema. But neorealism was not limited to film any more than it was to literature. It spread to other areas of artistic production, including architecture. What was, then, neorealist architecture?

Neorealist Architecture: Aesthetics of Dwelling in Postwar Italy appeared in October 2022 by Routledge.

This book launch will be introduced by Daniela Ortiz dos Santos.


Dr. David Escudero is an assistant professor at the Department of Architectural Composition of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSAM-UPM), and a member of the UPM Cultural Landscape Research Group (GIPC).
