Drawing in a Memory Theater: Revisiting Marco Frascari on Carlo Scarpa’s Reggia – Mastio Bridge Drawings at the Castelvecchio

Drawing in a Memory Theater: Revisiting Marco Frascari on Carlo Scarpa’s Reggia – Mastio Bridge... Abstract Studying, teaching and working with Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978) provided the remarkable architect and scholar Marco Frascari (1945–2013) with a unique opportunity to later write about and reveal his insights – of which there are many – into Scarpa’s world of drawing and imagining buildings. With reference to a selection of Frascari’s texts, this essay reexamines two drawings Scarpa made of the bridge between the Reggia and the Mastio tower as part of his remodeling of the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona. Frascari brings to light and situates Scarpa’s imaginative drawing practices in relation to the theater, particularly the memory theater of another former resident of Venice, Giulio Camillo (ca. 1480–1544). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Abstract Studying, teaching and working with Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978) provided the remarkable architect and scholar Marco Frascari (1945–2013) with a unique opportunity to later write about and reveal his insights – of which there are many – into Scarpa’s world of drawing and imagining buildings. With reference to a selection of Frascari’s texts, this essay reexamines two drawings Scarpa made of the bridge between the Reggia and the Mastio tower as part of his remodeling of the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona. Frascari brings to light and situates Scarpa’s imaginative drawing practices in relation to the theater, particularly the memory theater of another former resident of Venice, Giulio Camillo (ca. 1480–1544).
