Abstract

This volume originates in the scholarly papers presented at an international conference, “How to Narrate the History of Architecture, Centenary Conference in Honour of Bruno Zevi (1918-2000)”, held at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, on 7-8 May, 2018, to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the renowned architectural historian Bruno Zevi. Zevi was more than an architectural historian. He was an architect, critic, and an educator. Furthermore, he was also an Italian statesman and Jewish activist. As an architectural historian, Zevi holds a key place in mid-20th century architectural discourse. Signifi cantly, some scholars such as Panayotis Tournikiotis have credited him with the earliest reformulation of the tenets of the modern movement in architecture in the post-WWII era. Some of his observations on the architecture of the past are still cited today in general architectural history surveys. Zevi never shied away from ‘operative’ writing, voicing outspoken views both in Italy and worldwide.
