Fifty years have passed since the explosion of two fundamental phenomena of the architectural avant-garde, in an era full of changes, revolutions and hopes.

The Metabolists in Japan and the Radicals in Italy, though in very different contexts in terms of culture and tradition, followed parallel paths of research, sharing themes of investigation, tools, languages, and producing extraordinary effects on contemporary architecture.


The exhibition Architettura Invisibile at Museo Carlo Bilotti in Rome presents an unusual itinerary through the works produced in this unique context.


The exhibition will be accompanied by many events and encounters, as well as initiatives open to the public. For more info see the website


The exhibition is supported by Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth. Curated by Rita Elvira Adamo, the show is part of the program of celebrations for the 150th anniversary of relations between Japan and Italy.
