Farewell Parametro magazine

I’ve just found out that the long-running Italian architectural and urban design magazine,Parametro, has ceased publication. Our holdings of this journal here at GSA date back to the early 1970s, and I think it was published for several years before that. Parametro’s cessation follows that of the even more illustrious ‘Architecture d’Aujourd’hui’ which folded at the end of 2007. To architectural librarians like myself, the disappearance of these famous titles is a bit like the passing of old friends, but it's also worth reinforcing the fact that the internet still doesn't even begin to match the richness and quality of the printed architectural magazine literature.
