Giancarlo De Carlo (1919-2005) is a major figure in the architectural debate and practice of 20th century for his capacity of listening, accepting and annexing the tensions of the city and its inhabitants. Born in Genoa in 1919 the son of a naval engineer, he spent his childhood in different port cities as Livorno, Trieste and Tunis. His university education in Milan Politechnic and in IUAV Venice provided the link with the modernist avant-garde, namely with Giuseppe Pagano and Ernesto N. Rogers and at the same time with William Morris.
