Gabetti, Roberto

Gabetti, Roberto (1925–2000). Italian architect. In partnership with Aimaro Oreglia d'Isola (1928– ), he designed the influential Borsa Valori (1953) and Bottega d'Erasmo (1953–6), both in Turin. The latter was seen as an example of Neo-Liberty (it actually owes more to Art Deco), and indeed Gabetti and d'Isola declared their rejection of the ideals and doctrines of the Modern Movement, preferring to explore a development of local building tradition. They thereby incurred the wrath of the orthodox believers, led by Banham, but nevertheless continued to produce architecture that moved further and further away from a (by then) somewhat tired and discredited style. Among other works may be mentioned the Società Ippica Torinese, Turin (1959–60), the Conca Bianca condominium, Sestrière (1976–9), the Orbessano flats, Turin (1982–5), the monastery at Quart, Val d'Aosta (1984–9), and the offices and gardens for SNAM, San Donato, Milan (1985–91).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
