Mollino behind the lens
TORINO – It is impossible to place Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) in one single category. Indeed he was multidimensional: an architect and a designer, he combined technologic genius –with his Bisiluro, the double torpedo racing car he designed for the 24 Heures du Mans race in 1955 – and erotic provocation – with his multiple polaroid shots-. Photography was surely one of his driving passions. This exhibition gives us a detailed itinerary of its evolution with some 500 images, from 1934 to 1973.
