The three lives of Pier Luigi Nervi

A master of the 20th century

Nervi had three “lives”: the first, in which he is a skilful modeller of reinforced concrete structures, ended when Fascism forbad the use of this material; in the second, as a response to that prohibition, he invented a new way of building, the “Nervi System”, with which he created his most famous post-war masterpieces.

In the third, already extremely famous, he designed projects all over the world, becoming an ambassador of Made in Italy.
