This book is divided into two parts. The first addresses the question of the relationship between memory and architecture through the analysis of ancient and modern examples. This research leads to the recognition of a method that locates the roots of all design and cognitive activity in history and tradition. The second part of the book is devoted to a conversation with Gianugo Polesello in which, through an account of his main projects, Polesello explains the importance of the artistic influence of architectural masters such as Gardella, SamonĂ  or Le Corbusier, painters such as Cezanne, Picasso and Hopper, and the discovery of El Lisitsky and his Proun.
