When you think of famous Italian architects then certainly first of Gio Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, Renzo Piano or Gino Valle. A rather unknown, but not less creative architect from Friuli Venezia Giulia who has realized projects all over the world is Marcello D’Olivo.
On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, the Civici Musei di Udine dedicates to him a great exhibition in which it combines his architecture as well as art and shows what extraordinary projects D’Olivo has planned and realized over the years.
Architecture today must return to the place it has always been entitled to: to exercise its balancing function between the natural and artificial worlds. We need this badly. A place that lies between art and science, between architecture and technology, in order to ensure that the technological possibilities of man today do not destroy nature. – Marcello D’Olivo –
From December 4, 2021 to April 30, 2022, the “Salone del Parlamento” of Udine and adjacent rooms will host the exhibition between architecture and art, lines and drawings that tell about D’Olivo, his thought, love for nature and great creativity.
The exhibition, entitled “Marcello D’Olivo, architect of the world in Friuli Venezia Giulia”, curated by Silvia Bianco and Bernardino Pittino, presents the architect who, during his forty-five-year career, designed almost 400 architectures, worked all over the world, moved several times to different cities, while remaining affectively tied to his homeland.
This stunning exhibition is a must for those who want to know and learn more about Marcello D’Olivo!
