“Happiness comes from honesty.”
Angelo Mangiarotti Retrospective. Angelo Mangiarotti was one of the great protagonists of Italian culture of the twentieth century. Architect, urban planner, designer, sculptor, he developed an intense teaching schedule in Italian and foreign universities to convey his visions and methods, influencing generations of architects and designers. His belief is grounded in architecture resting in the practical. Sober and functional, industrial design was, for him, an expression of craftsmanship, respecting the materials being used and their honest application.

Angelo Mangiarotti. In recent years he devoted himself increasingly to sculpture, which he began in the 80s. His sculpture is a synthesis of his philosophies and design: matter and form, such as design and its relationship between man and environment. His motto "Happiness comes from correctness" identifies his civic sense and the ethnics expressed in his profession. The philosophical approach offers a unqiue and exceptional reference in all his works.
