One intriguing-sounding exhibit at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale, which opened to crowds this month, is a presentation on Renzo Zingone, a developer who built a utopian city outside Milan in the 1960s. "Monditalia: Z! Zingonia, mon amour" sounds like a fascinating show, as Zingonia prefigured some of the modern developments in the Garden City movement

Like most of the exhibits put on by planners, architects, scholars, and historians for the Venice Architecture Biennale, "Z! Zingonia" is more than the straightforward presentation. If you've ever been fortunate enough to attend the festival, then you know to pay attention to every detail. The one's that making me really wish I could see it in person is the light.
