  • Italians architects continue to be world leaders in design. Renzo Piano, 77, is the creator of no less than 21 projects for museums all over the world; only the most recent is his redesign for the once stodgy Harvard Art Museum in Boston. Now Stefano Boeri, 58, has just won the $62,000 International Highrise Award for his “Bosco Verticale” (Vertical Woodland) twin high rise-towers of 111 and 78 floors respectively in Milan.
  • On Monday, April 19 at 4:30 p.m. the body of St. Pio of Pietrelcina will be moved from the crypt in the small Santa Maria delle Grazie sanctuary to a crypt covered with gold mosaics designed by Jesuit Father Marko Rupnik, located in a magnificent new church designed by Renzo Piano. Many of the Saint's followers find it unacceptable, considering the new sanctuary too modern, too majestic, and above all, too removed from the way Padre Pio lived his life.
  • “Every time, it is a new adventure: A new place, new geography, new topography, new people … How can you believe that you can impose your style?” said the famous Italian architect at the opening ceremony organized by the California Academy of Sciences.
