Aldo Rossi. DESIGN 1960-1997

For the first time, more than 350 pieces, comprising furniture and household objects, prototypes and models, paintings, drawings, and studies planned and realized by Aldo Rossi from 1960 to 1997 are exhibited in a spectacular itinerary, a visual testament to his activities as designer, planner, and theoretician of architecture.  

From 29 April to 2 October, the Museo del Novecento presents Aldo Rossi: Design 1960–1997, curated by Chiara Spangaro, in collaboration with the Fondazione Aldo Rossi and Silvana Editoriale. With this show, the Museo del Novecento continues its investigation of the interdisciplinary relationships among the arts so characteristic of contemporary culture, delving deeply into the work and thinking of the architect, designer, theoretician, and critic, one of the key figures of twentieth-century visual culture.

For the first time, more than 350 pieces, comprising furniture and household objects, prototypes and models, paintings, drawings, and studies planned and realized by Aldo Rossi from 1960 to 1997 are exhibited in a spectacular itinerary, a visual testament to his activities as designer, planner, and theoretician of architecture.  

In all of his artistic production, beginning with the first furniture created in 1960 with the architect Leonardo Ferrari, Rossi reflected on the relationship between architectural and urban scale and that of monuments and objects. In 1979, he began to investigate the world of industrial production and high craftsmanship, designing furnishings and useful objects, at first for Alessi, then for Artemide, DesignTex, Bruno Longoni Atelier d’arredamento, Molteni&C/UniFor, Richard-Ginori, Rosenthal, and Up&Up (today UpGroup).

 Over a period of 20 years, he created more than 70 objects and pieces of furniture, many of which are still in production today, experimenting with forms and colors in metal and wood, marble and stone, ceramics and porcelain, artisanal and industrial fabrics, and plastic materials.
