The topic of the ‘connection’ suggested a comparison between two architects, both members of the Roman School of the early twentieth century, and both, not only ascribable to the category of ‘integral architect’, but also ‘architects-humanist’, two profiles with a high cultural level, not only in the area of architecture: Luigi Moretti (1906-1973) and Alberto Carpiceci (1916-2007). The aim of this essay is to connect two different methods of study, in the subjects as the graphic analysis and the history of representation, concerning the design of the façade of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), in terms of designing and construction. One of the biggest contacts between these two architects is the constant research about the figure of Michelangelo as architect, research suggested in both cases by the academic teaching of Vincenzo Fasolo (1885-1969), professor of History and Styles at the Superior School of Architecture in Rome.
