volume richly illustrated with colour and precious b/w
images, includes all the studies carried on during Sixties
about the possibility of building so high towers, both
from the technical and architectural points of view.
to Francesco Brunner's family, who supplied precious
technical material, we can also publish in the book
pictures of the excavation of the W.T.C. foundation
on which the Twin Towers were built. Mr. Brunner, in
fact, was the Italian engineer who planned and directed
the works for Icos Italy, a leading company in the world
in its field for construction work.
are also included shots taken in 1971 and '72 of the
Towers under construction and finally the photos of
the great, gigantic steel twin buildings, the Manhattan
Symbol, completed in 1973, pictured from different sides
by simple tourists that love NY now and forever.
It is also represented the big "Plaza" where
the Twin Towers rised, a splendid square full of everydays'
life. Climbing to the W.T.C. from the Subway, many camera
lenses immortalized shops and restaurants before entering
into the wide multi-colour tapestry room, where people
have to queue and wait (not for a long time anyway)
for their turn to reach the top (107th floor) of the
South Tower, using those very fast lifts. At that dizzy
heights there were shops, bars, snacks and the "Windows
On the World" restaurant saloon. There was also
the panoramic terrace from which so many tourists took
shots of New York City and sourroundings. The book also
shows pictures taken from an elicopter flying towards
the Big Apple, together with some nights snaps of New
York, the city who never sleeps. Other shots of the
Twin Towers have been taken form the Circle Line boats
navigating around Manhattan Isle on Hudson and East
preface of the book Twin Towers Forever has been written
by the Mayor of Brescia, Mr. Paolo Corsini. Mrs Matilda
Raffa Cuomo, the wife of the ex Governor of the State
of New York Mario Cuomo, sent from New York City her
support to the aims of this work, which profits uncoming
from sales are assigned to New York Saint Vincent Hospital,
Saint Agnes Church and Mentoring USA/Italia - Onlus.
short before going to press, New York Mayor Rudolph
Giuliani sent a touching letter which enacts a kind
of twinship between the two towns in which Francesco
Brunner operated. In fact Mr Brunner, the Italian engineer
who planned and directed works for the excavation of
the World Trade Center foundations, has been living
when possible at Desenzano sul Garda, near Brescia,
till the death occurred two years ago.
