SMALL UTOPIAS – Italian architecture of the third millennium between history, research and innovation26 | 4 | 2017
The show displays the work of ten Italian architecture teams. Regardless of any generational criteria, the choice focuses on the most innovative practices and those that best embody the identity of Italian architecture today. As opposed to the utopia-oriented approach of the 60s and 70s, the works we display are often small scale projects linked to the needs of the individual, to the ambition of recycling the existing built objects and to the aim at redefining the very paradigms of architecture today in a European context.
The exhibition is the result of a Euroregional competition organized by the Romanian Order of Architects, Timis County Branch, within the Biennale of architecture BETA 2016.

At this exhibition, using digital media, the most representative, beautiful and valuable objects from the Museum, that will be part of the future permanent exhibition, will be presented. A short story about Belgrade’s history from prehistoric to contemporary times will be told through fve sections.
