Italy 2018, 34 min.

Directed by Francesca Molteni

Vivere Al Italiana

The Power of the Archive – Renzo Piano Building Workshop, with the original music by Fabrizio Campanelli, illustrates the birth, structure, set-up and relations with the Renzo Piano Foundation and the RPBW, the purpose and the goals of the Archive. Drafts, sketches, models, renderings, drawings, particular techniques of completed structures – exhibited in the Renzo Piano Foundation but above all housed in the 3000 square meters of a converted factory in Genoa. A place of experimentation, revealed through the testimony of those who preserve it, systemise it and experience it day by day. The RPBW Archive is a metaphor for a sea port: where goods come and go, and every departure and every return bring something new with them, maybe something unexpected, that enriches its content and the potential for communication.
