Marco Brizzi, PhD, is professor, critic and curator in the field of architecture. As a finalist for the Golden Medal to criticism awarded by the Triennale di Milano in 2003, he is founder of Image, a leading company that has been operating for more than 20 years to promote a wider understanding of media issues in architecture. Brizzi started and directed “Beyond Media,” an architecture festival that took place in Florence from 1997 to 2009 focusing on videos made by architects in the context of a comprehensive debate on architecture and media relations. He directed “arch’it,” since 1995, one of the first online architecture magazines. In 2015, the intention to share one of the most substantial collections of architecture videos and his very personal experience on this specific kind of documents brought him to create The Architecture Player. In an effort to interpret the role of communication in architecture facing the challenges of the contemporary world, in 2020 he co-founded Cultivar.
Brizzi graduated from the University of Florence, the city where he lives.
