The notebooks by Giancarlo De Carlo is the first exhibition in a series dedicated to the most representative figures in the world of design, one hundred years after his birth. On display the notebooks of Giancarlo De Carlo – architect, urban planner, architectural theorist and Italian academic – so far never exposed to the public. Sixteen notebooks constitute a real private archive, drawn up over 39 years.
“Giancarlo De Carlo’s notebooks. 1966 – 2005”
24 January – 29 March, 2020
Palazzo della Triennale
Viale Emilio Alemagna, 6, Milano
The exhibition gives a cross-section of the issues addressed in the notes of Giancarlo De Carlo’s notebooks – personal reflections, travel reports, planning notes and relationships with friends and colleagues. Page after page, the unmistakable trait of De Carlo’s handwriting, the presence of sketches, the choice and use of different supports for writing, the obsessive use of collage and “pop up” give life to a real graphic project.
