La mostra itinerante Architettura armena (Milano 1968-Erevan 1996)

Un caso di studio attraverso le carte d’archivio

Beatrice Spampinato    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



On 27th October 1968 the architect Adriano Alpago Novello opened the photography exhibition Armenian Architecture. 4th-18th Century, organised in collaboration with the Department of Humanistic Studies of the Milan Polytechnic University. In light of the documentation of CSDCA’s (Study and Documentation Centre of Armenian Culture) Archive, it is possible to assume the curatorial choices that made this exhibition, which passed by thirty cities of three different continents, a large international success. The paper aims to examine this particular case of study that covers an important step in the overview of the Italian historiography on Armenian art studies.
