Breve racconto di Architettura [Brief tale of architecture] (1969-1970)
This project series features drawings and text, as well as collages on photographs, for a project entitled "Breve racconto di Architettura" by Poli. An inventory provided by Poli was used to identify the dates of these materials. The drawings and text seem to feature a journey on a highway (autostrada), or by plane, as all of the collaged images seem to be views taken from an airplane. These collages feature images of food and structures glued onto images of both rural and urban landscapes. References are made in the text to the Parco urbano Modena, possibly related to Poli's thesis project (see AP148.S1.1970.PR01), as well as to Roland Barthes, and "architettura invisibile".
