A wide vision of the rich Mollinian experience that explains the spirit, the themes and the architect work's qualities through the exposition of the rare authentic furnitures and the works coming from the private american and european collections, which the most complete is the one of the swiss gallerist Bruno Bischofberger.

Friendly and proud, concentrated and distracted, every antithesis is lawful to tell the personality of the exceptional engineer-architect, lucid dreamer self-important who never agreed to the triviality of an explanation of his own expression. His furnitures were almost all commissioned and created as unique pieces and for specified locations of which they were integral parts, synthetizying creative tensions towards the assumption of the organic forms as a referring point and of the feminin curves as a model.

A great exhibit, hold in an important book with critical interventions of Portoghesi, Lisa Ponti, Roggero and Marras, dedicates space to the projects on furnitures and interiors and the famous cars but also to his incredibile passion for photography, where more than two hundreds samples together with emblematic pieces, allow to gather the various moments of the one that was always an intimate component in the relationship between Mollino and his own creativity.
