Several Italian architects have recently taken up the technique of collage again to present their ideas. The three masters of this tendency are Carmelo BaglivoLuca Galofaro and Beniamino Servino, while the younger generation includes authors such as 
Davide Trabucco and robocoop.

If collage has been one of the favorite techniques in Italian architecture since the nineteen sixties, the current collagists are new in ways that relate to developments in digital technology. They use software like Photoshop to create their images, recur to social media like Facebook to post their work and they can refer to the whole history of architectural and non-architectural imagery, which is instantly accessible on the Web.

Their collages can be visual comments as well as daring fantasies. The book presents a rich selection of images and original texts dedicated to this phenomenon.
