Triennale Milano
13 April – 13 October, 2024

Four artworks from Alessandro Mendini's “Mobili per Uomo” (Furniture for Man) series - belonging to the FONDAZIONE BISAZZA Permanent Collection - will be on show at the solo exhibition Io sono un drago The true story of Alessandro Mendini   

The four sculptures on display - Guanto (Glove), Giacca (Jacket), Scarpa (Shoe) and Stella (Star) - express the high versatility and artistic value of the mosaic, paying homage to the architect and his year-long collaboration with the Bisazza.


"Triennale Milano and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain are presenting, within the ambit of their cultural partnership, a wide-ranging retrospective on Alessandro Mendini’s work as an architect, designer, artist and theorist who revolutionized thinking and lifestyle in the last century and the new millennium. The title of the show, Io sono un drago (I Am a Dragon), is inspired by one of his most emblematic self-portraits, to emphasize his uniqueness in the design world. The project – realized in collaboration with Archivio Alessandro Mendini and curated by Fulvio Irace – is divided into various thematic sections. It brings together works with varying formats, materials and subjects, which come from many public and private collections, and sees the participation of critics from all over the world."
