TRIENNALE “CASA LANA”
The permanent installation Casa Lana is located on the second floor of Triennale Milano, in the spaces of Sala Sottsass, where other thematic exhibitions are planned for the coming months.
On 2 December, Triennale Milano inaugurated its “Casa Lana” exhibition, a permanent acquisition that was made possible thanks to Barbara Radice and a donation by the Lana family. The flat, located in Milan’s trendy Via Solari, was built in the mid-1960s by Ettore Sottsass for Giovanni Lana, a friend, typographer and printer Sottsass worked with. Lana printed the Pianeta Fresco magazine – founded by Sottsass with Fernanda Pivano and Allen Ginsberg – from its first issue in 1967 to its final one in 1968.
