Starting from the analysis of the furniture project of Casa Albonico in Turin, a reinterpretation of the work of Carlo Mollino (Turin, 1905-1973) to highlight a series of aspects not yet sufficiently deepened but fundamental to understand its poetics: from personal obsession for the shape to the link with the second Futurism to the interests in craftsmanship, interior design, engineering, physics and aerodynamics. Essays, interventions by critics, artists and researchers, drawings, photographs, letters, documents and unpublished testimonies return the complexity of one of the fundamental figures in the architecture and design of the twentieth century.
