The Fondazione’s exhibition space and new headquarters is a building with a strong symbolic connotation in the context of twentieth-century Italian architecture and design, as it was envisionedby Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1960 for Dino Gavina. The space has become a crossroads of encounters that have marked the history of twentieth century design culture. Some of the biggest names in twentieth century culture have been here: designers and artists such as Lucio Fontana, Carlo e Tobia Scarpa, Marcel Breuer transformed this space in a creative lab that the Fondazione Massimo e Sonia Cirulli, today, reopens to the public. The Fondazione organizes exhibitions with a multidisciplinary approach, drawing from the Fondazione’s remarkable holdings of Italian visual art of XX century.
This is the only example in Italy of work by the celebrated Finnish architect Alvar Aalto
