Fondazione Achille Castiglioni


Fondazione Achille Castiglioni Piazza Castello, 27

Those who want to capture in a nanosecond the essence of the history of Italian design should simply book a visit to the Achille Castiglioni Foundation. And not only because in the extremely Milanese apartment overlooking the Castello Sforzesco, one of the world’s greatest designers worked for decades until his death in 2002, but because the researchers who illustrate to the lucky visitors the prototypes, the materials catalogued with acrimony, the anonymous objects from which Achille was inspired, the tricks and drawings are genial.
