San Lazzaro di Savena, Italy
The Fondazione established in February 2015 by Massimo and Sonia Cirulli is built upon three decades of work and experience accumulated by the Massimo and Sonia Cirulli Archive.
Fondazione Massimo e Sonia Cirulli’s goals are to promote knowledge of twentieth-century Italian art and visual culture from the early years of the country’s engagement with modernity to the postwar economic boom (1900-1970), and to organize exhibitions with a multidisciplinary approach, drawing from the Fondazione’s remarkable holdings, which survey several disparate fields—such as decorative arts, architectural design, industrial design, graphic design, and photography. These materials will tell the story of modern Italian culture through their unusual perspectives.
The Fondazione’s headquarters is a building with a strong symbolic connotation in the context of twentieth-century Italian architecture and design, as it was envisioned by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1960 for Dino Gavina.
