PARABETON - PIERRE LUIGI NERVI AND ROMAN CONCRETE

Heinz Emigholz

Heinz Emigholz | Germany | 2012 | 100 min. | No dialogue

Parabeton starts with the first still existing dome structure in Baiae near Naples, built in the first centry B.C. It is followed by a chronological array of seventeen preserved buildings by the Italian building engineer Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979). Nervi is the Architect‘s Architect of the 20th century. The Nervi sequences are interrupted by cinematic studies of Ancient Roman concrete constructions from the first century B.C. The film hereby suggests a relationship between Nervi‘s bold constructions and the groundbreaking inventions of Ancient Rome 2000 years ago.
