ongoing Magistretti Revisited

Curated by: Rosanna Pavoni, Margherita Pellino

The show

The Vico Magistretti Studio Museum Foundation reopens to the public and presents the Magistretti Revisited exhibition. An exhibition inspired by the game of Chinese boxes that aims to tell the work of Vico, architect and designer, in his Milanese studio and his link with the city. The first box is Milan, a much loved and equally severely criticized city, the city that he looked at from the windows of his studio. The second box is the studio where Vico worked all his life, with Franco Montella at his side; a studio so small as to arouse continuous amazement in visitors but which, precisely with its size, also tells us about a working method. The third box contains the archive that preserves sixty years of projects, now open to all thanks to the portal; the archive is under the studio, it supports it (... not only physically), it gives it the stories (of products and producers, of buildings and clients) that become words and paths in the exhibitions, in the guided tours, in the books. Milan, the studio and the archive are told through Magistretti's drawings and objects, in an installation that, thanks to the recovery of the studio's original furnishings, is an attempt at synthesis between philological reconstruction and reinterpretation of the original atmosphere of the place where Vico and Franco Montella spent their days. Accompanying visitors in this re-enactment path are Magistretti's words (taken from interviews, notes, reports) presented as an enlargement of the pages of one of his notebooks, as if the installation became a large notebook in which to immerse oneself .
