Charles Jencks describes developments in Italian architecture by citing several examples of items and projects that developed through the 1960s and 1970s. He uses Carlo Maciachini’s Milan Cemetery to show how a collection of styles in one place can form a type of architectural utopia. Jencks frames the enduring metaphors and signifiers of 1930s Fascism as the context for subsequent explorations of irony and obscenity, especially in projects by Superstudio, and rationalists like Aldo Rossi.
