Abstract

Photography represents an important survey instrument for Italian architects in First and Second post World War periods, often replacing the traditional travelogue. Plinio Marconi widely employs original photographs to document the linguistic achievements of Asplund and other emerging Swedish architects on the magazine “Architettura e arti decorative”. After the war, the study tour promoted by the Academy of Saint Luke in August 1958 is emblematic, leading young architects as Gianfranco Caniggia, Paolo Marconi, Adelaide Regazzoni to visit Sweden and Denmark. The expressive photographs, recovered in public and private archives, and sometimes employed in the best-known manuals of architecture of the '50s and' 60s, return the interests of the emerging Italian architecture to the technological and social innovations impressed by the so-called "Nordic neo-empiricism" in the residential planning of Scandinavian cities such as Copenhagen, Stockholm, Göteborg, Uppsala.
