Few modern architects have had such a formative relationship with a city as Kahn's with Rome.
Although his parable started from the fundamental period in Philadelphia, the real "turning point" of his work lies precisely in his stay in the capital, during which all the processes that had matured in him for some time found an answer and a representation. formal.
Conversely, starting from the 1960s, Kahn exerted a profound influence on Italian architecture, and on Roman architecture in particular, influencing its evolution and subsequent developments.
For the young students of the time, exponents of a restless generation because the daughter of a world in constant change, the figure of Kahn immediately appeared revealing, perhaps also because of his being in turn a restless Master, capable of oscillating between the serene celebration of the enigmas of time and the desire to unveil the dominion of form and matter.
