The Mollino Set - Lytle Shaw

The Mollino Set - Lytle Shaw


New York-based professor Lytle Shaw journeys to Italy in this adventurous exploration of the life and work of architect, designer, and photographer Carlo Mollino (1905-1973). In 1933 the young Mollino received a commission from Mussolini's regime for his first building: an administrative centre in Piedmont. Later works include furniture and interior design, a book on photography, and an asymmetrical car that raced at Le Mans in 1955. The book centres around Shaw's realisation that this prolific talent's conflicted legacy offers a unique window on the role that post-war Italian politics and culture played in the country's reimagining of itself as a victim, rather than a proponent, of fascism.
