Aldo Rossi, the first Italian to win the Pritzker International Prize for Architecture, died Thursday in a hospital here, university colleagues said. Rossi, 66, died of injuries suffered in a car crash last week, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. The Milan-born Rossi, who was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1990, designed the World Theater, a floating theater created for the Venice Biennale in 1979, and the Museum of Maastricht in the Netherlands.

Controversy is not exactly a word that makes Disney executives cackle with joy. So it's no surprise that, under the 17-year tenure of Michael Eisner, the company has become one of the country's most important patrons of a fuzzy classical architecture. At the Burbank campus alone, there are major buildings by the Three Kings of Postmodern irony--Michael Graves, Robert Venturi and Robert A.M. Stern.

Italian architect Aldo Rossi, known for his haunting drawings of his designs as much as for the designs themselves, is this year's Pritzker Prize laureate. The coveted award, scheduled to be announced in Los Angeles Sunday, includes a $100,000 tax-free grant and is considered in the profession the Nobel Prize of architecture. The actual award will be made to the 58-year-old Milan born-and-based architect in a ceremony in June at the Palazzo Grassi Museum in Venice, Italy.

The noted Italian architect Aldo Rossi makes Post-Modern buildings that often look like fantasy sets for "The Taming of the Shrew" mixed with the elegiac memories of Giorgio de Chirico. Rossi also draws. A couple of dozen etchings and finished studies rework traditional piazza, dome, campanile and loggia into a whimsical world of shifting perspectives and visual amusement.

FOR years, I used to be a filtered coffee girl, standing sleepy-eyed and barefoot, pouring boiling water splash by splash into a Melitta filter. Until the day I discovered my old Bialetti stovetop espresso pot at the back of a cupboard. It brought back memories of waking to the happy burble and smell of espresso brewing at friends' houses in Italy. Practically everyone there makes their morning coffee in such a pot.

YES, THERE IS something laconic about La Conica, the copper- bottomed, stainless-steel espresso coffee maker with a lid that resembles the Tin Man's conical helmet from "The Wizard of Oz." Introduced in 1984, Milanese architect Aldo Rossi's design was an instant classic. As an architect, Rossi talks more than he builds.
