Description

This book is a trek through Italy's Western Alps to discover the buildings that have been constructed in the mountains of Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta in modern times: the 'invention' of mountain landscape in the 18th and 19th centuries; the birth of tourism; the first winter-sports resorts; mass tourism; diversification of consumer models; current building types for a new way of living in the mountains.

A trip in stages, via the projects and buildings of architects such as Vittorio Bonade Bottino, Carlo Mollino and Aimaro Isola, to name but a few, that reveals the close bonds between Turin and the mountain chain surrounding it. A fascinating pocket history illustrated with sketches and photographs, this is part of a series reconstructing aspects of architecture in Turin throughout the 20th century.
