STUDIO 65

STUDIO 65
Franco Audrito was born in Balangero (Turin) in 1943. He lives and works in Turin, Riyadh, Jeddah. In 1965 he founded Studio65, together with a group of Italian artists and students. In 1969 he graduated in Architecture in Turin. In 1969 Nanà Audrito became part of Studio65. Until 1975 they designed ironic and irreverent objects, interiors and architectures, as a group of that avant-garde of radical design, which revolutionized the languages ​​of design and architecture between 1965 and 1975. Studio65 experience in the historical and international context of Turin: imagination in power. In 1976 they venture to the Middle East where they open a studio in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) and win some competitions. In 1985 Electa published the first monographic book on Studio65's design and architecture projects; in 1995 the Ark published the monograph "Studio65", then re-edited in 1998 and 2000 with the title of "Franco Audrito - Studio65". The works and projects of Franco Audrito, Nanà Audrito and Studio65 have been published in various magazines and newspapers around the world. The breakdown of cultural and linguistic patterns, dominant in European and overseas social, political, youth, workers and artistic movements, remain a constant in the production and creativity of the Studio65 even in the Turin and international experiences that have become prominent since the mid-1970s. After around 50 years of activity in the field of architecture and design, Studio 65 in Turin launched an ambitious cultural project in 2014 by establishing the Association Il Mercante di Nuvole based in Turin in Via Valprato n.68, within the suggestive premises of the former Dora Docks.
