  • INVENTARIO 09 Everything is a project cm 21 x 27 | 160 pages | paperback | 10,00 € English and Italian texts ISBN 978-88-7570-456-8

  • An editorial initiative created and managed by Beppe Finessi, edited by Corraini, promoted and supported by Foscarini.

Compasso d’Oro winner bookzine continues its exploration of the world of creativity.

In this ninth issue, and the first since being awarded the Compasso d’Oro “for its ability to synthesize lofty cultural themes with a light touch, illustrating them with a strong visual identity and high editorial quality” in May 2014, INVENTARIO continues its wide-ranging exploration into design culture in a close dialogue between design, art and architecture, true to its multi-disciplinary approach. The cover of this issue is dedicated to a natural, multifaceted yet essential element: the leaf. An element that has conquered the creativity of many designers and artists, who have been able to rework its shapes, colours and functions into the most diverse design objects, pieces of furniture and works of art. Inside we find features that organise the flow of thoughts, objects and images. In this issue, Mariana Siracusa tells us about the relationship between art and architecture in the work of Fred Sandback, Massimo Curzi introduces us to “Personal inventory” in the fascinating work of A G Fronzoni; Cristina Miglio writes about a “Myths of Today”, Shiro Kuramata, while Matteo Pirola tells us about Alessandro Mendini’s “Normal wonders”; Giulio Iacchetti’s “Short Notes” sheds light on an discreet multifunction object like the hanger; in “Temporalia” Giacinto di Pietrantonio researches the design of an iconic character, Pinocchio, a work of craftsmanship in itself, and Michele Calzavara delves into the work of a “creossover architect”, Jürgen Mayer H. Foscarini’s sole brand footprint in the magazine is via the commissioned photography series in the inside covers of each issue, artistically depicting models from its lighting collection. The edition 09 features the work of photographer Jonathan Frantini, adding to the portfolio of works in previous editions by photographers Massimo Gardone, Max Rommel, Moreno Gentili, Lena Amuat, Emmanuel Mathez, Gionata Xerra, Sanja Pupovac, and Claudio Gobbi.
