A Smorgasbord of Young Italian Architects

When Americans in the architecture scene look abroad, their focus too often lands on the same celebrity practitioners. In Italy, their gaze falls on Renzo Piano (although some also see Massimilano Fuksas not far in the distance).

But what if we could put on special glasses, ones that could dim the blinding brightness of starchitects in the post-Bilbao universe? What would we see? Some of the Italian talents we would spot would be Cino Zucchi, Cliostraat, Altro_Studio, and Metrogramma.
