The works of Livio Vacchini feature an extreme coherence of theme and practice. Each project is conceived ideally as the continuation of the lines of research explored by modern architects of the classical tradition, like Auguste Perret, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Louis Kahn. An extreme reduction of structural elements is present in all his designs . The most important values of his works lie precisely in their intentional "untimeliness" : indifferent to novelty, interested only in respecting an inner coherence, detached, far from the chatter and gossip of the world of architecture of our time.
