The book sets out to describe the work of Ignazio Gardella in the Milanese cultural and architectural scene. Gardella graduated in engineering at the Milan Politecnico in 1928, and, in 1949, in architecture at the University of Venice, where he held the chair from 1962 to 1975. In 1947, he participated in the first INU Congress. From 1952 until 1956, along with Samona, Rogers and Albini, he organized the CIAM School in Venice. In 1959 he was a member of the Italian delegation that attended the last CIAM Congress in Otterlo. The book takes a critical look at Gardella's work in the field of design, starting with early projects like the competition for a Tower in Piazza Duomo in 1934, the Anti-Tuberculosis Dispensary (1933-38).
