It is common knowledge that people dedicated to Philosophy and Arts we have no ability to successfully solve small problems such as installing a lamp or building a tiny timber construction for a child. However, a quick check in my readings’ memoris made me remember a very significant fact: I reminded myself that once the architect Francesco da Giorgio had to submit a project of his to the opinion of a court formed by three people. One of them was a humanist, a man of letters: Fortunio Spira. The other two members of the court where a remarkable architect named Serlio, and an extremely renowned painter of the same Italian Renaissance: Titian. I thought that if in another time it was considered appropriate to use a man of letters to collaborate on an assessment of architecture, this could be considered a precedent to allow the men of letters of the twentieth century to participate in the debate about the art of drawing and building.
