In the years of his maturity, Carlo Scarpa (Venice, 1906 - Sendai, 1978) found an ideal client in the Banca Popolare di Verona and the opportunity to create an extremely complex work, one of his few new buildings. Every part of the organism is painstakingly defined through numerous drawings and the façades in particular display constant reference to ancient architecture combined with a very modern vocabulary and the utmost attention to detail.
The book examines the development of the work and the contribution of Scarpa’s associates who completed it after the master’s sudden death in Japan, first and foremost Arrigo Rudi, as well as the recent restoration of the façades (2013–14), directed by Valter Rossetto.
