Ludovico Quaroni, one of the Italian leading masters of Italian modern architecture, during the Sixties of the last century, involved his University Chair, his assistants and the students of his university courses in his most conceptual, utopian project: a linear city between Rome and Florence, spreading up the Tiber Valley, the Chiana valley and the Casentino, an immense indeterminate Continuum, a real Non-stop City, a landscape within a landscape where the shape no longer corresponds to the activities pursued within it, but conforms to lives lived in a fluid society, which is submerged in a resilient democracy, possesses no ideologies but is mobile and interchangeable, and extremely rich environmentally and materially. In March 1968, with the outbreak of the students' movement, everything came to a halt as immobilised in the harsh light of a lightning bolt in the dark. Quaroni's utopian vision, crushed by events, nevertheless was able, so far, to vividly live in the memory of his former students and assistants. Fifty years after the abrupt end of that utopian and educational project it is time to collect the left memories and the few left documents to fix its presence in the history of the European Radical Movements of architecture. A second issue, Quaroni is burning, complements the understanding of the complex and deeply Italian Quaroni's way to live and intend Modernity.
