Studying the history of a project through its drawings, models, the client's profile, pictures of the construction site and the finished building, is a fundamental excursus, but it cannot replace the deeper understanding that materializes during a visit to the place. I reread Silvia's diary during my trip from Genoa to Athens, flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet, with the concentration required to grasp the nuances of her experience and retrace through the eyes of a young architect her visit to all the buildings designed by Renzo Piano and RPBW, which I too have equally studied over the years. I really appreciated her passionate story and trust that her wonderful adventure will spark the curiosity of any reader fond of architecture. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9788862423243 20190211
