TEMPLES TO ENERGY
Hydroelectric Power Plants by Piero Portaluppi
21 March 2018 – 24 June 2018
Curated by Francesca Zanella and Edoardo Pepino, in collaboration with the University of Parma and CSAC.
In this exhibition, a suite of five drawings, on loan from CSAC with the kind permission of the University of Parma, some of them never before published, tells the story of the monumental power plants built in Northern Italy at the start of the twentieth century.
Piero Portaluppi (1888-1967), a master architect and proponent of Art Deco, devoted much of his time to the design of these structures. This project by CSAS demonstrates the best of his creativity.
