This book reconstructs the history of palazzo Mondadori in Segrate, the edifice built between 1968 and 1975 to house the offices of the publishing house founded in 1907 by Arnoldo Mondadori. Two walls made of reinforced concrete, lightened by the syncopated rhythm of parabolic arches, support a floor to which the glass prism of the offices hangs. The geometric rigour of palazzo Mondadori contrasts with the free shapes of the constructions emerging from an expanse of water. This edifice was commissioned in 1968 by Giorgio Mondadori, who was fascinated by Niemeyer's headquarters of the Foreign Office in Brasilia (Itamaraty, "palace of the arches"). If the extraordinary expressive ability of the Brazilian architect generally focused on the structural elements of the building, which he shaped in sensational ways Palazzo Mondadori represents a change of direction, showing an indissoluble integration between form and structure. Documents, original sketches by Niemeyer, plans, photographs of the construction site and of the finished edifice, together with the photographic campaign made by Gabriele Basilico after the building's restoration allow the reader to follow the different stages from a philological perspective, at the same time exact and fascinating. This book will be interesting not only for the lovers of contemporary architecture but also for the common readers
