Intellect is pleased to announce that /*Giuseppe Pagano: Design for Social Change in Fascist Italy* <>//,/ by Flavia Marcello, is now available.

Giuseppe Pagano-Pogatschnig (1896–1945) was a twentieth-century polymath operating at the intersection between architecture, media, design and the arts. He was an exhibition and furniture designer, curator, photographer, editor, writer and architect. A dedicated Fascist turned Resistance fighter, he was active in Italy’s most dramatic social and political era.

/Giuseppe Pagano/ provides a comprehensive overview of the influential architect and his contribution to the development of modern architecture. It follows a central biographical line with in-depth, mini chapter contributions on aspects of Pagano’s cultural production, concluding with writings by Pagano himself and a critical bibliography to aid scholars in further study.
