Carlo Mollino was a remarkable protagonist of 20th-century Italian culture. As an architect, designer, educator, photographer, sportsman, and author, he defiantly embraced and embodied modern eclecticism. He is known for his building, interior, and furniture designs—and also for a stash of erotic Polaroids from the 1960s recovered among his personal effects after his death. In this Miami Art Week event, Michelangelo Sabatino, co-author of Carlo Mollino: Architect and Storyteller, will present Mollino's most significant designs and identify the creative processes that generated wide-ranging visual, tactile, and spatial experiences.

Books will be available for sale at a reception and signing after the talk.

Free, advance registration required.

Presented with support from Rob Beyer and the Consulate General of Italy in Miami.
