FROM GORIZIA TO THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE - ARCHITECT ANTONIO LASCIAC

 

An important exibition the one that will take place in Gorizia at Palazzo Attems-Petzenstein from the 29th of September 2006 to the 4th of February 2007 about the architect Antonio Lasciac, that once again wanted to evidence the particular relation between architecture and photography that we can always find in the projects and collections by Museo Alinari. The exibition “From Gorizia to the Ottoman Empire. Antonio Lasciac Architect. Pictures from Alinari Collections” is realized by Alinari in collaboration with Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia, Province of Gorizia and Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Gorizia.

Antonio Lasciac (1856-1946), architect and engineer, poet and musician, clever man often forgot who left an unforgettable sign of his works, an estate of architectural works not only in Gorizia but also in many capitals and cities of the East, mostly in Egypt. Sixty years after his death is growing a renewned interest around his work. A very intense life, entirely satisfactory, but also signed with adversities, incomprehensions and deaths in the family. There are 160 images exhibited, mostly unpublished, taken from 3 precious albums guarded with care by Alinari, that compose the richest repertoire available, which shows, documents and acquaints the public with the professional life of the architect, in the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his life and the 60th anniversary of his death.

After taking an university degree at the polytechnic in Vienna, the activity of the architect Antonio Lasciac (Gorizia, 1856 – Il Cairo 1946) went on for the most part in Egypt; first of all, from 1883 to 1888 in Alessandria, where he contributed to the rebuilding of the “european” city centre, that was destroyed by the english bombing in 1882, than in Cairo, after a short period in Italy with various vain attempts to enter the professional world in Naples and Rome. In Cairo the career of the architect, encouraged by the support of important purchaser belonging to the upper classes or to the agyptian government, was also completed with the award of architect of palazzi kediviali from 1907 to 1914. The important development of the studies about Orientalism recalled the attention of students and researches of different countries about Lasciac and in particular to the part of his works that elaborated and architecture in arabian style that was modern for Egypt. Thanking these projects and realizations, that represented anyway a very small part of his egyptian production, Lasciac has been recognized as a peak figure into the group of the european architects, proposing a modern architecture rooted in the local islamic traditions.

The publication and exposition of the three albums of the Alinari collection is an important contribution for having a better knowledge of the architecture by Lasciac, because it is the richest available repertoire of photographic images, some unpublished, and documents forty-one works, with also some projects until now unknown. These 160 pictures, enriched by precious (even if not always precise) notes autographed by the architect, allow to understand better the professional course of the artists.

This is not the complete work of Lasciac yet, because some materials have been lost and some others are scattered between public and private archives, not always accessible. Anyway, the selection given to the visitors of the exibition and to the students is the widest one, with the most representatives works of his production; a very important starting point for the ones who want to appreciate the works of the architect from Gorizia.
