"It is more from our works that we spread ideas than through ourselves," said Franco Albini.
And it is precisely his works that speak to us about him, philosophy emphasizes his work; of a strong social tension, expressed without redundancy, pursuing the obsessive attention to detail and the constant refinement of an idea of combining freedom with fantasy, giving life to a poetic and functional world at the same time. Regarding the knowledge of Italian and international architecture. Following the recognition of his work bound by the Italian State as a National Historical Heritage, in 2007 the Franco Albini Foundation was established with the aim of divulging a "method lesson" that can serve the contemporary world.
