The newspaper article this morning on Il Giornale, written by Pamela Dell’Orto, was a nice surprise that delighted the author, collaborators and the whole Superstudio team.

The Superstudio book, conceived and created by Gisella Borioli officially comes out on February 1st to remember not only twenty years since the opening of Superstudio Più, great multicultural and exhibition center in Via Tortona, Milan, but above all the contribution it has made to the development of  Fuorisalone in the districts and the change in design representation, switching from the product to the culture and research behind the product itself.

A book like this on Fiorucci had never been seen before. An incredible story that comes from a small group of people who lived in synergy and symbiosis, in years where everything seemed possible, around an extraordinary man, a pioneer and forerunner of trends, so far ahead that still today he is a source of inspiration. 
Franco Marabelli lived the most exciting era with Elio, taking every idea and contributing decisively to every project, especially to legendary shops around the world. Thus the modern concept store was born...

A meticulous archive work and finally the book "Caro Elio" published by Rizzoli...

In this book wanted for love by Franco Marabelli, friend-collaborator right from the first hour, there is the whole man, his life, his history, his ideas, his world told by a hundred friends. A world that represents the beginning of fashion and modernity. Caro Elio, edited by Franco Marabelli, published by Rizzoli, is already in the bookstore.

Finally I received the magnificent book on Fiorucci by Franco Marabelli, brilliantly laid out by Pier Paolo Pitacco, with the collaboration of Franca Soncini. And it was like going back, in a moment I was among friends of the 60s/70s/80s catapulted by a time machine able to bring back emotions, challenges, fun, the energy of years that to tell them today we hardly believed it. Relationship, meetings, faces, people, eccentric personalities, visionaries...

The restart after the lockdown makes you think about the fate that suddenly forces you to change direction and, often, life. Here we repropose an extraordinary story with an autobiographical book and film. That of Flavio Lucchini, president of Superstudio Group who, as Oliviero Toscani said "was the real creator of the birth of made in Italy".

It is difficult to imagine that that boy born in the Mantuan countryside, raised in the difficulties of the war and probably destined to be a farmer like the whole family - but with that unusual ability to know how to draw very well and to be passionate about art and architecture - could find his way in a completely different world, that of fashion, creating the most important newspapers and raising the most famous designers. The final goal of his long and varied path is Superstudio, founded a long time ago, in a certain sense the sum of his interests, after having been with equal success teacher art-director journalist editor entrepreneur and simultaneously, for the past thirty years, artist who investigates the mysteries of fashion in order to give it a sort of eternity...

For the architect Massimo Roj founder of PROGETTO CMR, an Integrated Engineering company, and his band (with Marco Ferrario and Antonella Mantica) certainly yes. And also for the curator Fortunato D'Amico with whom he created a surprising book entitled Rocktecture, a neologism that brings back to the surface the influence that revolutionary music had on the young students of polytechnics of the ‘70 and on all the culture of the years to come. And it prompted them to forget the teachings of their famous masters to venture on the path of an innovative and breaking architecture.
Rocktecture has nothing to do with the books illustrating the latest buildings and urban solutions of the archistars, they emphasize, and often exalt, the constructive and technical characteristics, they browse through rigorous pages and impeccable images....

If Milan has become the first example of city where fashion determines character, design is a global phenomenon, creativity talks the languages of the world, urban fabric is spotted with temporary-locations and the Fuorisalone has become a model imitated in many capitals, maybe thanks a bit to destiny, in addition to its illuminated pioneers. This is, at least what Flavio Lucchini claims, founder and president of Superstudio Group, but also editor and artist, protagonists of the creative Milan since 1960, whose yesterday’s choices have contributed to the Milan of today. This is what Lucchini describes, as author, in his last book “IL DESTINO – dovevo fare il contadino ma ho incontrato la moda (e non sono uno stilista)”, a first person path through the golden years of fashion and the encountering with great fashion designers, intellectuals, well-known photographers, artists of the time, social revolutions.
