Manifattura Tabacchi will host the exhibition Pier Luigi Nervi Architettura come Sfida (Architecture as a Challenge), an international retrospective dedicated to one of the most significant Italian engineers of the 20th century. The culmination of a vast research project, this detailed journey through Nervi’s work is marked out by twelve iconic projects, selected by an international scientific committee chaired by Professor Carlo Olmo, and with materials illustrating the project for Manifattura Tabacchi.

Scale models, designs and archive photographs shine a light, chapter by chapter, on the entire creative career of Pier Luigi Nervi.
