Abstract

Giuseppe Terragni and Pietro Lingeri’s Danteum project has been the subject of numerous studies and investigations. Moreover, in recent years, digital reconstructions of the building have been made which significantly contributed to the understanding of the project and to the knowledge of the design process, as well as to Pietro Lingeri’s role in it. This essay consists of two parts: the first, by Emanuela Ferretti, investigates the context in which the project took shape, with particular regard to the Italian scenario of 1938-1939; the second, by Attilio Terragni, highlights – with the sensibility of the architect-designer – some of the characteristics of the Danteum project and is accompanied by reconstructive drawings of the building, made by the same author on the basis of original drawings by Giuseppe Terragni, preserved in the Terragni Archive in Como.
