For the centennial of his birth, the show pays tribute to one of the great protagonists of the golden age of design in the 1960s, who created over 150 objects and as many as 484 installations.


The exhibition Achille Castiglioni, Visionary (1918–2002) concentrates on the great choreographic skill that emerges in the creations of Castiglioni.

Sketches, drawings, models, videos, original objects and prototypes shed light on the perfect combination of simplicity and irony behind the depth of his ideas and the ability to construct spaces in close collaboration with graphic designers, especially the Swiss designer Max Huber.

The show with exhibit design by Migliore+Servetto Architects and Italo Lupi, in collaboration for the curating with Nicoletta Ossanna Cavadini, examines the role of temporary installations as a tool of cultural and commercial communication.
