A

n evening devoted to design: on Tuesday the 13th November, the interior design showroom Linee Contemporanee in Salerno invites you to a talk by Giovanna Castiglioni, Achille Castiglioni’s daughter as well as the vice president of the Fondazione Castiglioni.

This is an event not to be missed, held to celebrate a double anniversary – the showroom’s 70th birthday as well as the centenary of Achille Castiglioni’s birth.

On this occasion, the international, travelling project Achille Castiglioni 100th is going to be presented too. It pays tribute to the iconic Achille Castiglioni and his ability to break the boundaries of conventional design, interpreting everyday life with intelligence and irony.

The evening is hosted by Giovanna Castiglioni herself, who paints an original, authentic portrait of her designer-father as well as introducing the exhibition (curated by Zanotta) that includes the designer’s most popular pieces for Flos, an overview of the projects for Zanotta and a special focus on the Mezzadro seat, an undisputed, timeless design icon.

When: Tuesday 13th November 2018, 7.00 pm onwards
Where: Linee Contemporanee, 39 via Parmenide, Salerno, Italy
