On March 28, the exhibition “Frank Lloyd Wright between America and Italy” will be opened in Turin at the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli.
An exhibition not to be missed that will show the Wright’s organic architecture through projects, photographs, objects, catalogs, lithographs and original drawings, starting from his first stay in Italy in 1910 until his last visit in 1951.
Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most famous and important architects of all time, the father of modern architecture whose vision has changed the idea of designing and living. A true myth with an incredible life that has been able to create buildings to visit on pilgrimage.
It was precisely a pilgrimage what we made two years ago when we visited its architectures on the west coast of the United States, from the Guggenheim in New York, to the super icon, Falling Water, to the “Prairie Houses” in Chicago and surroundings.
The exhibition will remain open until July 1, 2018. An excellent opportunity to visit the Pinacoteca Agnelli, on the top floor of the Lingotto complex in Turin, a sort of futuristic spaceship designed by another archi-star: Renzo Piano!
