The embassy of Israel to Italy, in collaboration with MAXXI, organises the exhibition TEL AVIV the WHITE CITY on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel. Curated by Nitza Metzger Szmuk, the exhibition comprises 100 photos, sketches, models and videos, revealing the exceptional urban project behind Tel Aviv involving the collaboration of more than 70 architects and engineers between the 1920s and 1930s. The new city was designed according to the spirit of the Bauhaus by the most important names of the era, primarily Patrick Geddes, with buildings inspired by the architectural ideas of Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier and Erich Mendelsohn.
