Abstract

By writing the sentence «Révolucion personnaliste et communautaire», the French philosopher Emmanuel Mounier invites the intellectual to «refaire the renaissance», without deserting any commitment, but trying to resist, at least culturally and realistically, in the face of «criminals who are bleeding the centuries», and, therefore, also looking at the positive that exists and multiplies. Political fervour, as the beauty of a commitment, and the moral, social and cultural struggle, characterize the whole life and thought of Bruno Zevi, whose aversion to totalitarianism, oppression and every form of denial of human identity, comes from the profound reading of the works by Benedetto Croce. The Estetica before and La Poesia later stimulated artists, historians, scholars, and architects to rethink the methods of their work, by overturning the modus cogitandi et operandi active before then. In the process of inner excavation of the poetic phenomenon led by Croce, Zevi reads the need for authenticity, net of literary ideologies and acrobatics, in art as well as in social life, transferring these achievements to his work as an architect, professor, critic and, above all, man.
