DESCRIPTION

Maria Savostyanova’s lecture cycle Design Todaycontinues with a public talk by architectural historian, writer, curator and founder of Casa Mollino in Turin, Fulvio Ferrari.

In the late 1970s, Fulvio Ferrari bought the “house on the hill” designed by the great Italian surrealist architect and designer Carlo Mollino, restored it together with his son Napoleone, and turned it into a Carlo Mollino museum and foundation.

At the lecture devoted to Mollino’s legacy, the audience will discover why in 2005 Mollino’s oak and glass table for Casa Orengo was sold at Christie’s for $3,8 million, setting a new record for twentieth-century furniture.

We thank Mirra Gallery for their help in organizing Fulvio Ferrari’s visit.
