Vico Magistretti Architetto Milanese

May 11 – September 12 2021
The retrospective, which has been created in partnership with the Fondazione Vico Magistretti and is curated by Gabriele Neri, brings together the wealth of drawings, sketches, models, photographs, prototypes and original items preserved in the archive of the Milanese architect and designer. The exhibition looks back at Magistretti’s entire career as a designer, which began shortly after the Second World War, right here at the Palazzo dell’Arte. 
Divided into thematic sections, the exhibition is the first time that Vico Magistretti’s work has been presented in a unified manner, with his architecture and installations, and his design and urban planning, together with his many international contacts. 
Red, the distinctive colour of many of his works, acts as a sort of underlying theme of the show, evoking the combination of modernity (the red of the avant-gardes) and tradition (the brick red of old Milan) that is a feature of his work. Tributes by the designers Konstantin Grcic and Jasper Morrison, who were Magistretti’s students at the Royal College of Art in London, are also on display.
