Vittorio Gregotti (10 August 1927 – 15 March 2020) was an Italian architect, born in Novara, and attended the Politecnico di Milano. He worked as a contributor to Casabella, an architectural magazine, and was its editor-in-chief from 1955 to 1963. Gregotti founded his own studio, Gregotti Associati International, in 1974 but also lectured on architectural theory, becoming a key figure in 1970s Postmodernism.
Vittorio Gregotti’s reputation reached well beyond architecture—he was also a respected art theorist, editor, curator, and teacher.
Vittorio Gregotti’s passing on the 15th of March because of pneumonia brought on by COVID-19, truly marks the end of an era. Gregotti is considered by many to be an outstanding figure whose career profoundly transformed the architectural practice in Italy and beyond.
