Hotel Hotel in Canberra will host a conversation between two Italian-born architects and friends, Enrico Taglietti and Gianmatteo Romegialli.

Enrico Taglietti earned a degree in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1953. He emigrated to Australia and set up his architecture practice in Canberra in 1956. Now in his 90s, Taglietti has become Canberra’s most enduring modernist architectural voice with almost 30 built projects in the nation’s capital. Taglietti was awarded the Australian Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal in 2007.

Gianmatteo Romegialli studied at the Polytechnic University of Milan in the 1980s. He developed a curiosity for Australia after reading about Glenn Murcutt’s projects in architectural magazines. In 1995, Romegialli and his friend Massimo Tadi (nephew of Taglietti) organized their first trip to Australia, during which the pair visits the works of Robin Boyd, Col Madigan and Harry Seidler.

Taglietti and Romegialli will each discuss three projects comparing each to explore the influence of context. the will also discuss the similarities and differences of being an Italian born and trained architect working in Australia and Italy respectively.
