“Carlo Mollino. Maniera moderna” was promoted and organised by the pretigious Haus der Kunst in Munich. It displayed for the first time in Germany the polyedric architect from Torino, reading his projects through a selection of buildings, furniture, photographs and passions: from the Casa del Sole (Cervinia) to the Regio Theatre (Torino), from the Lutrario Dance Hall (Torino) to the House on the Agra plateau (Luino) and unpublished Polaroid photographs (all preserved in the archives of the Faculty of Architecture of the Politecnico of Torino), the DaMolNar, the manuals on skiing and the history of photography. The exhibition displays a large selection of furniture too: chairs, armchairs and tables designed inside his interiors.
Laura Milan was research assistant for the exhibition and assistant to the scientific curator of the Carlo Mollino Fund and participated in the writing of the catalogue and of the booklet.
