Galleria Rossella Colombari
via Maroncelli 10
CARLO MOLLINO, SIGNORA LB, Fotografie e Polaroid, 1940-1960
Galleria Rossella Colombari will dedicate an entire section to Carlo Mollino's photographic production: a collection of polaroids and photographs, dating from the second half of the 1940's through the end of the 1960's. A didactic itinerary composed of photographs which have never been exhibited before and which narrate the Turinese architect's multifaceted activity. In this context, Mollino's photographs will be cradled by furniture pieces of his peers: architects such as Gio Ponti, Franco Albini and Ico Parisi.
This ambience, in a call to the cult of Mollino and his love of the female figure, is inspired by women's magazines of the period, the first Domus and Casabella magazines, which promoted the progressive and innovative mindset of the great Italian architects.
This narrative atmosphere is completed by the ceramic work of the artist Bruno Gambone and the eclectic frame of the contemporary designer Niccolò Spirito.
Opening Maroncelli District - April 18 from 6pm to 9pm
