Relationships with Italy were crucial in contributing to the making of postmodern architecture in Australia. In this collection of essays and conversations, the authors reflect upon the reception of Italian postmodern architecture in Australia, revealing a richness of original interpretations.

Dedicated to the memory of Romaldo Giurgola and completed by a poem by Enrico Taglietti, this book adds to the ongoing discourse on European influences on Australian culture and represents the first collective attempt to initiate a critical assessment of national postmodern architecture.
