The volume, with a preface by Germano Celant and numerous critical contributions, traces the work of the Milanese architect Mario Bellini, in a transversal journey spanning almost sixty years between design, architecture, installations, and much more.
In fact, these pages also tell about the photographer (as Gabriele Basilico and Mario Calabresi point out), the art collector (Vittorio Sgarbi writes about it), the editor of a prestigious magazine like Domus (from 1986 to 1991 as Italo Lupi recalls), the companion of explorations around the world (with urbanist Marco Romano). In a word, the ever-curious traveler behind the architect celebrated everywhere and the designer winner of eight Compasso d’oro awards.
An artist skilled in moving in all scales of design-from the chair to the skyscraper as was his professor at the Milan Polytechnic Gio Ponti-who now brings back to the center of the debate the subversive and saving role of “beauty” and the all-Italian ability to be its interpreter in the world.

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.
