The book published by Electa, which accompanies the exhibition at the Triennale Milano, pays tribute to a fundamental figure in 20th century design and architecture. Starting with an analysis of the project for the furnishings in Casa Albonico in Turin, loaned to Triennale Milano thanks to the collaboration of the Ministry of Culture - General Directorate for Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape, Superintendence for Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the Metropolitan City of Milan and the Regional Directorate for Lombardy Museums, the publication considers some aspects of Mollino's work that have not yet been sufficiently examined by critics, but which are fundamental for a contemporary re-reading of his work and poetics. and poetics of the Turinese architect and designer.
