Belgiojoso, Peressutti and Rogers

(est. 1932)

The partnership of Banfi, Belgiojoso, Peressutti & Rogers was established in Milan, Italy in 1932. It was composed of four graduates of the Milan Polytechnic - Gianluigi Banfi (b. Milan 1910; d. 1945), Lodovico Belgiojoso (b. Milan 1909), Enrico Peressuiti (b. 1908; d. Milan 1975) and Ernesto Nathan Rogers (b. Trieste, 1909; d. 1969).

The partnership rejected the traditional neoclassical teachings of the Polytechnic, and incorporated ideas from such modern European architects as Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe into their designs. Despite this, their designs retained traces of the Italian architectural tradition.

Although World War II temporarily interfered with their work, and led to the death of Banfi, the surviving three members rejoined after the war to produce some of the more pivotal works of that period. These works showed a melding of traditional architecture with a modern philosophy.

Banfi, Belgiojoso, Peressutti & Rogers worked in all areas of architecture including interior design, industrial design, and urban planning. While working professionally, the members of BBPR were also active as writers and teachers. Rogers was especially active, making major contributions to architectural journalism as the editor of Quadranted, Domus, and Casabella-Continuita.

The firm made a major contribution in spreading modern concepts in Italy.
