The Project

This project was born in the context of the celebrations for  Brasilia’s 60 years (2020) and of the International Conference of Architects of Rio de Janeiro (2021), from a collaboration between the MAXXI and the Italian Cultural Institute of Rio de Janeiro.

It presents a multimedia itinerary, divided into thematic sections that contain drawings, photographs, documents and correspondence preserved in the MAXXI Architettura Archives Centre.

The visitor’s itinerary is accompanied by new videos which explain and place the Embassy project within the historical and urban context of the creation of Brasilia, the “city of the future”, but also of the Italian scenario in the 1970s.
