Additional Information Abstract This article examines the frameworks of artistic competition embodied in a contract for a contest of medalmaking between Benvenuto Cellini and Giovanni Bernardi, and in descriptions of other competitions, especially in Cellini's autobiography. Strategies, decorum, and rhetoric of such competitions were embedded in notions of honor. In addition to personal and professional honor, court status and patronage were also at stake. By means of his competition with Bernardi and his medal of Pope Clement VII, Cellini hoped to recoup lost standing and favor, along with concomitant commissions and emoluments at the papal court —specifically, it is argued, an appointment at the Roman mint, where Cellini had been replaced by Bernardi in
Architects Studies, Foundations and Archives that represent figures from the world of architecture and design, firmly believe, like us, in the exchange and sharing of knowledge and have enthusiastically joined the project Archivia.
The perception and the transformation of reality are, therefore, the keys to a conception of architecture as both body and idea, at once real and emotional, pragmatic and sensual, acceptable and yet also capable of engendering wonder as a catalyst of new understanding.

Franco Albini Robbiate, Como — Milan Born 17 October in the countryside north of to a well-to-do bourgeois family, Franco Albini always preserved fond memories of Brianza, of its gentle landscape, its traditions, and the lessons learned from its peasant and domestic culture: Franco Albini always held the poetry and the power of such a tradition in his memory, just as he always felt the reverberations of a childhood amid a happy family and long conversations with his sisters.
After high school he attended architecture school in Milan, applying him self with great discipline to the eclectic course of academic studies than in favor.
He graduated in and served his apprenticeship with the Milanese Architects Gio Ponti and Emilio Lancia, in which time he had direct contact with talented cabinet-makers and craftsmen, from whom he sought to discover the potential of every craft and the range of freedom each would allow.
Then Franco Albini discovered the Modern Movement.
Clearly, young architects where interested in the risk, in the desire to substantially modify formal language. During these years the most pertinent group of Milanese Rationalists gathered around Pagano, persico, Giolli, and the magazine Casabella. They probed beyond questions of form and architectural language, delving into social issues and problems of production.
Casbella ventured to introduce criteria of modularity and seriality into architectural practice, in order to successfully industrialize the building industry. The young architects were conscious that the important large commissions were going to architects of the regime, they focussed on minor themes, often ephemeral in duration.
These activities, important in the way they helped to communicate new issues, were the focal point of intense personal research.
Collaboration was a frequent condition for young architects. Franco Albini turned his attention to many fronts.
He believed in studying models of centrai European Rationalism that proposed exemplary contemporary solutions in modem terms and in reflecting upon works from ali eras, realized by others, in order to grasp the value and the interactions of proportions, measures, volumes, and transparencies, and to understand the substance of the architectural language in question.
His penetration of the problem at hand was both profoundly reasoned and originai. For example, inon the occasion of the Scipione exhibition in the Napoleonic rooms of the Brera, he used expanses of paper along the perimeter of the rooms and detached from the walls, imbuing the spaces with a sense of depth and indicating the ephemeral duration of the intervention through the impermanent and spare material.
Evenearlier, inhe carne up with the unusual solution of a completely exposed radio, mounted within a supporting system of glass panes. Infor the Villa Neuffer in Ispra, he designed a staircase as a spatial object hung by slender tierods that occupied the volume of the entrance atrium.
His sensitive solutions were always rigorously verifiable, subject to tests of feasibility and usability.
The war years, from tobrought the fall of Fascism and the events of the Resistance. Camus left the studio and collaborated with the Germans; Palanti, earlier active on the left, moved permanente to Sao Paolo, Brazil.
It was a time for doubt and reflection. Albini, silent but always attentively involved, if detached, acquired a clearer knowledge of social and politicai values and, at the same time, became very interested in looking back at vernacular architecture.
Where were the sacred principles of functionality and rationality? The architects involved sought to insert their work within an ancient environment, clearly according to modem necessities but with great delicacy, without disturbing the older fabric with grand structures in reinforced concrete.Upon completion of the advanced course in Design and Business, after having successfully passed all relevant exams, the student will be awarded the diploma (advanced level) of the Accademia Italiana and the Graduate Business Certificate awarded by La Salle University, accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of timberdesignmag.com This article examines the frameworks of artistic competition embodied in a contract for a contest of medalmaking between Benvenuto Cellini and Giovanni Bernardi, and in descriptions of other competitions, especially in Cellini's timberdesignmag.com · Uno intorno alle otto principali arti dell’oreficeria.
