Corso Garibaldi 125, Milano, until February 26, 2021

The Antonia Jannone Drawings of Architecture gallery reopens with an exhibition that associates some drawings by Aldo Rossi with photographs of some of his works created by Santi Caleca in 1989 for issue 3 of Terrazzo, the art, design and architecture magazine founded by Ettore Sottsass and Barbara Radice.

From 1988, the year of the first issue, up to 1996, with the printing of the last, 13, Terrazzo expressed Sottsass's desire to produce a cultural instrument of the highest quality, both for the topics covered and for the relative choices. to graphics, images, cover and paper.

Terrazzo took into consideration architecture and design with particular attention to contemporaneity, widening his gaze to the international panorama and observing it from the point of view of the most varied disciplines, from literature to poetry, from history to science, from philosophy to art, up to anthropology.

The article dedicated to Aldo Rossi, published in issue 3 of the magazine, presented a selection of his citations from Scientific Autobiography, accompanied by some of his studies and drawings and enriched by a text by Sottsass dedicated to the Rossian shots of Santi Caleca.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the precious nucleus of the drawings has been almost completely reconstituted and is presented in relation to the photographer's black and white shots.

With the aim of continuing to spread Rossi's architecture through the many channels he explored, an edition in thirty copies of the ten photographs on display was created by the gallery, in a reduced format, available in three different boxes, designed and produced by Michele De Lucchi, Giò Latis and Franco Raggi.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the heirs of Aldo Rossi, Santi Caleca and with the scientific support of Fondazione Aldo Rossi.
