280. Taranto. Concattedrale Gram Madre di Dio


Dear Anna,

Towards the end of his life Gio Ponti said to his daughter:
"They say that I reached the apex of my creative life with
the Pirelli Tower; but that was in the 1950s. I went on
working for another 20 years, and the cathedral in
Taranto marks another high point"
The new Murcia City Hall built by Rafael Moneo seems
to me to be somehow in debt to this delicate building.

All the best.
