[Author: Francesca Zanella]
The relationship between thought and image is a constant in the work of Ettore Sottsass jr (1917-2007) that clearly emerges from his archives, created and donated to the CSAC of the University of Parma in 1979 to testify his activity from 1922 to 1978. The book gives an account of this archive, a sort of autobiography, through its cataloguing, flanked by some historical-critical in-depth analysis, that allows us to reconstruct research, relationships and exchanges.

 

The relationship between thought and image is a constant in the work of Ettore Sottsass jr (1917-2007) that clearly emerges from his archives, created and donated to the CSAC of the University of Parma in 1979 to testify his activity from 1922 to 1978. The book gives an account of this archive, a sort of autobiography, through its cataloguing, flanked by some historical-critical in-depth analysis, that allows us to reconstruct research, relationships and exchanges. Thanks to the almost 14,000 small sheets of paper, tempera, sketches, project drawings, notes, notebooks and a few rare photographs, it is possible to reconstruct the traces of frequentations and linguistic comparisons, highlighting the specific nature of Sottsass’s work, from interior design to architecture and design. What emerges is a cross-section of the most significant moments of collaboration with industry and thus the start of a reflection on a new idea of design in the 1970s.

caleido_silvana editoriale

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
