L'Architettura degli Alberi, first published in 1982, has been out of print for two decades.

Biography

In 1963, as an undergraduate at Florence University of the Arts, Cesare Leonardi (1935-) opened a design practice with Franca Stagi (1937-2008), a postgraduate at Milan Polytechnic. Together they designed the celebrated Nastro, Eco, and Dondolo chairs before turning to urban and landscape design, renovation, and redevelopment in Modena and its surroundings.
