"Being born in Milan carried its weight. We are at the end of 70’s. The world is in turmoil. These are the years of protests. It’s a dark time in Italy. My parents split when I was 4, and that’s when my mother decided to enroll at Brera Fine Arts Academy. Thus began my involuntary education towards art, the discovery of other cultures and my curiosity about the outside world. Ironically, down to recent times, it would just be informal experiences, which would not have any effect on my professional choices..."

On the occasion of the Federcongressi demonstration today in Rome in front of Palazzo Chigi, Superstudio wants to support with a symbolic signal the protests - peaceful and in compliance with Covid19 regulations - of a sector that has been completely forgotten, trusting that the Government will listen and respond to requests for support for businesses and professionals.

This is the text that appears on our LED portal, all red S.O.S.: "The congress and events industry is a driving force for productivity and exports, driving tourism by generating an induced amount of about 65 billion euros with a direct impact on GDP of 36.2 billion euros / year (Italy represents the sixth nation in the world due to the economic impact generated by the events and congresses sector), employs 569,000 people: now it is fighting for survival ”.

"I was born in Brazil, I was a model, stylist, finding in the fashion world and in the vibrant late 80s Milan the place to put down my roots. I started as an artist through the art of recycling, using my hands, in a real hand made. The meeting with Fiorucci was the turning point and my first collaboration, as a visionary he entrusted me with the ceiling of his shop. And from there it was all a crescendo. My studies in art, design, fashion, Feng Shui, the development of numerous craft techniques have become over time an overwhelming passion for light and decor"...

"After an already creative childhood, the art school in Genoa and the Politecnico in Milan, my first job was at Olivetti where there was maximum openness to creativity and almost no budget limitations. In 1972-73 the Corporate Image Service was established and it was a tragedy for me. It was necessary to standardize and normalize everything: type of furniture, walls color, kind of lighting, etc... The profound rebellion against this form of approach made me sick. Whatever was available on the market was a total bore"...

"Now that I think about it...'getting your hands in' as it happens in the artworks on display production, it’s perhaps a bond with my mother, which I lost at a young age, who gave me her pleasure of making little practical things (while certainly my father was the culture pleasure ideal man)".  Ilaria Marelli is an architect, designer and lecturer at Milan Polytechnic. I met her, a little more than young lady, just graduated, when she came to Superstudio with that Giulio Cappellini talent-scout, who wanted her near him for the first exhibition here. I found her, shortly after, as one of the Milano Donna award’s winners which I designed for the municipality on request by Letizia Moratti, at the time our Milan female mayor...

"I come from Russia which has a Soviet mosaic great heritage and my father made some of them. I lived for a year in Saint Petersburg where entire churches such as the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood are mosaic covered, not to mention the metro which is all completely covered with mosai".
She discovered mosaic as a child, beside her father, painter and mosaic artist. She learned art and technique at Saint Petersburg Mosaic School and, later, in the famous Mosaic School of Friuli leaving as Great Master of mosaic art with the desire to work in Italy. The glass tiles charm her and encourage her to do everything to promote this refined, manual, filled with poetry art...

Focus on Paola Navone.

"The common thread of my work: curiosity, and desire to always look at the next day, never to what is over. Projects which I’m more attached to are those that are not completed, because as soon as they finish for me a sort of period, an adventure, a journey ends. There’s no end to curiosity, to the different’s exploration: as meaning that it’s really like a treasure hunt and you know this treasure is somewhere in the end".
Born in Turin and Milanese by adoption, Paola Navone graduated in Architecture in 1973 and between the 70s and 80s she was part of Alchimia group with Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass and Andrea Branzi. Where she breathes the revolution which opens the door to contemporary libertarian design...

"I was born in Milan 55 years ago and after having wandered for years, in 2014, I went back to my beloved city; I currently reside here with my three wonderful children. My aptitude for drawing and fate, supported in this by my mother’s will, led me to study in a Milanese art high school, where I graduated in 1983. From then the step towards Politecnico di Milano was short; I graduated from Architecture Department, with a thesis on urban design, my thesis advisor, Professor Belgiojoso. I worked in his studio for a few years..."
