“The modern exists and it’s important, even if someone has forgotten it. […] Indeed, such is the responsibility that designers should have of things that are still standing, that I would everyone to sign. That is, all things in Rome should be signed with the author’s name and surname. If there was a name on them, maybe there would be a different circle, a virtuous one perhaps, that would force architects to design with a greater sense of responsibility. It’s a matter of quality and culture of the designers, everything else really matters very little. I almost do not see the distance between the history and the project: when you make history in a certain way and when you build is the same operation, you work with the most architectural material, as long as you have a minimum of cultural depth”.
