Famous Buildings of the Lurago Family in Bohemia
December 15, 2015 – January 14, 2016

Opening ceremony - Photogallery

In 2015 it passed 400 years since the birth of Carlo Lurago, and 250 years since the death of Anselmo Lurago, two eminent Italian architects, who lived and worked in Prague and the Czech lands. They belonged to the extended family of Luragos, coming from Northern Italy and to a large family of Italian bricklayers, stonemasons, builders and architects, who indelibly entered the list of architectural heritage of our country.
The exhibition provides virtual wandering around buildings of Carlo and Anselmo Luragos in individual Czech regions, towns and sites, and features at least part of unique architectural and cultural heritage, preserved up to the present days. It has been organised by the Kotěra Centre of Architecture.
