PERMANENT INSTALLATION AND EXHIBITION UNIVERSO FUTURISTA FONDAZIONE CIRULLI

This delicate enterprise raised too many questions to ponder in too short a time to respond without falling into error and spoil the space that was so masterfully conceived by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni in 1961.
How to act in this place without disturbing its light and its almost magical atmosphere?
How to safe these qualities when one cannot disregard today’s codes and norms as perhaps the Castiglionis would have been able to do?
How could one extend the life of an installation made for a temporary exhibition and think ahead to a permanent one that remains flexible and effective? The way to go was to follow the Castiglionis and tiptoe behind them without losing sight of what they wrote on the pages of Domus, 385, when the building was finished, as “a space invented with liberty and with rigor.“
Persisting in this vein we chose large display panels of glass and metal frames in order to separate one area from another and safely mark off the stairs. Throughout we used only one identical metal profile of 2,4 cm for tables, casework and panels as an homage to lightness and cunning à la Castiglioni.
In a marginal note on a lecture script of 1986 Achille Castiglioni penned this reminder: „always work with graphic artists.“ We couldn’t agree more and worked once again with Daniele Ledda.
