It is perhaps not common knowledge that certain relationships with Italy were crucial in contributing to the development of postmodern architecture in Australia. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by Silvia Micheli and John Macarthur, various authors reflect on the reception of Italian postmodern architecture Down Under, revealing a richness of original responses and interpretations. Dedicated to the memory of architect Romaldo Giurgola and completed by a poem by Enrico Taglietti, the book is an addition to the ongoing discourse on European influences on Australian culture, and represents a first critical assessment of national postmodern architecture.
