An exhibition underscoring the influence of Japan on architect and designer Carlo Scarpa is currently on view at MAXXI, Rome. The exhibition, titled 'Carlo Scarpa and Japan', will run through February 26, 2017.

The exhibition throws light on the multiple and deep-rooted motivations that link the architect and designer, Carlo Scarpa (1906 - 1978) to Japan, to its architectural culture, its literature and its historical, cultural and constructional traditions. With projects, photographs and documents, many on show for the first time, the visitor gets the opportunity to reflect upon the various forms of the country that can be found in Scarpa's works.

The exhibition is on view at MAXXI, Via Guido Reni, 4/A, 00196 Roma, Italy. For details, visit, www.fondazionemaxxi.it
