“Between History and Memory” tells of the first 150 years of the Politecnico di Milano through interviews with prominent scholars. The interviews are supplemented with iconographic and filmic materials primarily from the Historical Archives of the Politecnico di Milano.
Rector Giovanni Azzone and historian Federico Bucci were interviewed along with fifteen other key witnesses: Tomas Maldonado, Arturo Bellavitis, Alberto Seassaro and Francesco Trabucco for the Design field; for Architecture, Cesare Stevan and Angelo Torricelli; Alberto Cigada for Chemical Engineering; Giorgio Diana for Mechanical Engineering; Emanuele Biondi for Bioengineering; Giulio Ballio for Civil Engineering; Armando Brandolese for Engineering Management; Carlo Ghezzi for Computer Engineering and Amalia Finzi for Aerospace Engineering. The interviews are also presented in a series of short films dedicated to the many disciplinary centres of the Politecnico di Milano.
