This book serves as an argument against the low durability of contemporary housing and the negative contribution it provides to the economy and ecology of a country like Italy. It highlights the negative consequences - above all from the social point of view - on the war against 'traditionalism', a phenomenon still present in a lot of Italian Schools of Architecture. The author demonstrates with skill and documentary information that in Italy, 'traditional housing could cost from 16.35% up to 40.74% less compared with current housing'. He uses as examples the buildings of Garbatella and San Saba's Roman quarters, now 80 to 100 years old, which he calls 'virtuosos'. He says that the buildings 'have never been subjected to interventions of maintenance by the ownership, because they were wisely built according to traditional techniques'.
