Heiner Thofern: A Beautiful Game

Roman Entrances

Edited with text by Ute Eskildsen. Text by Elisabetta Cristallini, Heiner Thofern.

Heiner Thofern: A Beautiful Game

A gorgeous homage to the rich variety of the entryways of the postwar Roman palazzina

This book explores a uniquely Roman type of building, the palazzina—a four- or five-story residential structure of the most meticulous design, built during the Italian economic miracle between the 1950s and ’70s. A Beautiful Game focuses on the extraordinarily imaginative entrances of these buildings.

Over many years, Heiner Thofern (born 1959) photographed palazzine during his evening wanderings throughout the north and west districts of Rome. It was the intricately conceived and constructed entrances, realized mostly through collaborations between architects and artists, that particularly caught his eye.

A Beautiful Game reveals the varied treasures of Thofern’s photographic archive, a rich collection that allows us to examine the particular sense of play and passion for beauty that shapes this era of Italian creativity, a delight in la bella figura, and a desire to constantly reinvent the possibilities of design and architecture.
