Luigi Walter Moretti (1907 – 1973) was an Italian architect. He was born in via Napoleone III, on the Esquiline Hill, in the same apartment where he lived almost his entire life. The house Il Girasole ("The Sunflower") designed in 1949, and built in Rome in viale Bruno Buozzi (near via Parioli) in 1950, is one of the best known projects of the period, and is considered an early example of postmodern architecture. The building is also mentioned in the essay by Robert Venturi, Complexity and Contradiction in architecture, as an example of ambiguous architecture, poised between tradition and innovation.
Luigi Moretti is an architectural practice based in Roma, Italy.
