BDC28, a deconsecrated church in Parma regenerated by Lucia Bonanni and Mauro Del Rio (creators of the BDC-Bonanni project of Rio Catalog), pays tribute to the visionary genius Ettore Sottsass 100 years after his birth with the exhibition BDC18: Le Metafore di Sottsass.

A “joint” project between the new exhibition space in Parma and the Triennale Design Museum of Milan, which has asked BDC to loan a selection of works for the solo show There is a Planet.


The exhibition in Parma features 30 works by Sottsass from the series Metafore, now in the private collection of BDC.
