GUIDO GUIDI. MY CARLO SCARPA
Curated by Giulia Lambertini (Reggio Emilia, 1983), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan
Since the early 1960s, photographer Guido Guidi (1941) has been using his camera to get closer to the work of architect Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978), his first and most important mentor in Venice, in a journey of discovery that has yet to be completed. Thanks to the original photos, full of autograph notes, kept at the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio (CISA) in Vicenza, we take a surprising journey: From the Negozio Olivetti in St Mark’s Square to the Gipsoteca Canoviana in Possagno, from the Palazzo Abatellis Museum, which houses the famous Annunciata by Antonello da Messina, to the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, one of the most admired and copied museum layouts in the world, to the Complesso Monumentale Brion in San Vito di Altivole (TV), Carlo Scarpa’s memorial work.
