The journey to Atlantis, the city that for centuries has stimulated the curiosity of philosophers, scientists, pioneers, novelists and now world-famous architects, starts from the port of Genoa. A journey that in reality constitutes a narrative artifice of Carlo Piano to strike up a dialogue with his father and retrace together the stories that lie behind his most important projects. Images of the port, the water and the light re ected on the sea recur in the story, elements skilfully evoked in Renzo Piano’s architecture: the «Beaubourg looks like a ship, out of scale and in dry. The Whitney a vessel oating above Manhattan, the Shard the mainmast of the clippers that galloped from the Indies to the ames».
