For over thirty years, from 1950 to the mid-eighties, Giorgio Casali photographed the work of the leading Italian architects and designers. His longstanding cooperation with the international magazine Domus shows how he documented a period when Italy was shaken by a desire for renewal that radically changed some of its most recognizable characteristics .
The exhibition “Giorgio Casali photographer / Domus 1951-1983 / Architecture, design and art in Italy,” records these years through a selection of exceptional photos that appeared in Domus: these magnificent photographs of architecture bring to life objects and characters that marked the collective memory of a generation. An event to be enjoyed just as much by lovers of photography as a means for critical and visual expression and interpretation of space as by experts, scholars and lovers of Italian art, architecture and design.
Among the iconic objects chosen for the show is Angelo Mangiarottis Eccentrico table (Agapecasa).
