This book is about Pietro Porcinai, a landscape architect, active from the 1930s until his death in 1986. His apprenticeships in Belgium and Germany exposed him to recent developments in landscape architecture and architecture as well as helping develop a network of design professionals and technical support throughout Europe. As Italy's principal practitioner and sole landscape architect working in the modern idiom, in 1948 Porcinai was a founding member of the International Federation of Landscape Architects. While he never taught on a regular basis he was instrumental in establishing several landscape programs and his office was an important training ground for young landscape architects.
