There is a planet is a journey, a monographic exhibition that illustrates the work of this eclectic artist. Overseen by Michele de Lucchi and Chrisoph Radl and directed by Silvana Annichiarico, There is a planet puts on display the work of an architect who at the same time was also a designer, photographer and writer. And who through his notes, photographs, sketches, pottery and furniture, illustrates an extensive world where creativity and poetry take an important place.
This occasion – one hundred years from Ettore Sottsass’s birth – catapults us in a world that mixes the imaginary with reality, as well as holiday mementos and projects that never saw the light of day: on display in nine different rooms grouped under the same number of themes. This subdivision was prompted by Sottsass’s writing, and in fact the different rooms are names after his work and illustrate different moods, sensations and trends, without being in a precise chronological order.
