IL RESTAURO ARCHITETTONICO AL POLITECNICO DI MILANO: Lâ€™APPORTO DI LILIANA GRASSI
AbstractLiliana Grassi, who works since the crucial moment of the post-war reconstruction, in the architectural restoration has to tackle the problem of the use of the language of Modernism, whose conceptual foundations are based on anti-historical authenticity, moving both from the acceptance of the new language and from the refusal to consider it a sort of â€œultimate formal styleâ€, separating it from the social and existential contents on which it was based. Liliana Grassi stays inside the tradition that links restoration to the historical interpretation of architecture from which she infers selective parameters, but in a view that goes beyond the old positivist stand: she shuns the tricky definitions of art and â€œnot artâ€ of the neo-idealistic culture. With great planning sensibility she carries out restorations of cultural and formal excellence, she succeeds in making the old, recuperated with high technical skill, discuss with the new, as it occurs in the old Ospedale Maggiore in Milan.
