Scope and Content

The project series documents "Citta Futura", a series of architectural drawings made by Pettena as part of his graduation thesis at University of Florence in 1968. Pettena's thesis was on the urban requalification of the Santa Croce area in Florence damaged by a flood in 1966. For this project Pettena was "influcenced by the many visionary proposals of 'cities of the future' of the early '60s" [1]

The project series contains project descriptions in English and in Italian, and scanned copies of drawings by Pettena for his thesis at the end of the 1960s.
