Early on in his career, the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa (died 1978) was impressed by the work of Josef Hoffmann. Later he confessed that Hoffmann was the architect whose work he knew best and appreciated most. The extent to which Scarpas architectureoften called the special path to modernity was actually influenced by his great predecessor is the subject of this exhibition.
