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 envisioned
by 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.
