At the Triennial, the Loyalty of Betrayal According to Carlo Aymonino

At the Triennial, the Loyalty of Betrayal According to Carlo Aymonino
#Exhibitions

The human and professional goings-on of an extroverted and inclusive intellectual are contained in the red albums in which Carlo Aymonino drew and filled with anecdotes, weaving an itinerary dominated by the eccentric focus of the Roman architect. While designing for the suburbs, he was politically engaged in battles over various historic centres. He was Roman but worked for Milanese magazines. Aymonino had the paradoxical capacity to take on all the principal cultural and political arenas of the second half of the 1900s without being caged into a single category, evolving continually through minor riffs perceived as betrayals. From this, the exhibition gets its name Fedeltà al Tradimento, now at the Triennial to retrace the entire architectural project universe of Aymonino, with the objective of getting a better understanding - through paintings, photos, interviews and archival materials - of the architect but, above all, the man himself. The love for drawing and painting, his political commitment, his family life intertwine seamlessly with the work of the architect, often taking on the suburbs of the cities, from the Gallaratese neighbourhood in Milan to the Spine Bianche neighbourhood in Matera.
