After the Second World War Milan was largely destroyed. The age of reconstruction had to face many different problems that implied important architectural and theoretical questions, the loss of a great number of monuments that represented the identity of the city and the destruction of many historical residential blocks. In this period, an important school of architects was developing in Milan: to be truly modern they claimed it was necessary to look at history and to study the construction principles of historical cities, not to imitate forms but to not lose their own identity. The research moving toward a modern architecture that was closely related to the tradition was also applied to the reconstruction of the residential blocks of the city center.

Abstract

After the Second World War Milan was largely destroyed. The age of reconstruction had to face many different problems that implied important architectural and theoretical questions, the loss of a great number of monuments that represented the identity of the city and the destruction of many historical residential blocks. In this period, an important school of architects was developing in Milan: to be truly modern they claimed it was necessary to look at history and to study the construction principles of historical cities, not to imitate forms but to not lose their own identity. The research moving toward a modern architecture that was closely related to the tradition was also applied to the reconstruction of the residential blocks of the city center.
