The exhibition is the result of a cataloging activity of the architectural heritage regional of the twentieth century, understood as an ‘open’ and implementable tool, with which we aim to get to know and put 100 modern architectures of recognized quality ‘on the net’. The values ​​of these works in the Appulo-Lucan area, often found in similar aspects of other architectures built in different places, times and circumstances, are enhanced by those that can be identified through the independent consideration of the individual works .

The exhibition is the result of a cataloging activity of the regional architectural heritage of the ‘900, intended as an’ open ‘and implementable tool, with which we aim to get to know and put’ 100 ‘modern architectures of recognized quality’ online ‘. The values ​​of these works in the Apulian-Lucanian territory, often found in similar aspects of other architectures built in different places, times and circumstances, come out stronger than those identifiable through the independent consideration of the individual works. They were selected out of 151 by an international scientific committee which includes among others: William J. Curtis, Federico Bucci, Franco Purini, Amerigo Restucci who oversaw the introduction of the Exhibition Catalog, published by Gangemi Editore, edited by Mauro Sàito and Antonello Pagliuca.
