With the drawing "The Allegory of Death. Polittico" by Lina Malfona, the University of Pisa is present in the exhibition "In Memoriam" at Yale School of Architecture (February 20, 2020 - March 28, 2020).

Along with poets and gravediggers, architects belong to a very small group of people who might be expected to take a professional interest in how they are memorialized after death. And many architects have indeed designed their own tombs, from Mimar Sinan to Le Corbusier.

In Memoriam presents tombs that architects design for themselves, in the past and the present, as a starting point in a conversation about memory and death in Architecture. What do we as architects choose to remember and honor—and how?
