Visiting the studio of one of the greatest masters of the twentieth-century design as Achille Castiglioni was a deep emotional experience every person admiring creative geniuses should do, if heading
to Milano (guided tours on appointment).
The scope and mandate of the Achille Castiglioni Foundation is to highlight, protect and display the material that makes Achille Castiglioni’s cultural, artistic, professional and human legacy accessible to all. Visitors to the studio are given the opportunity of actually seeing the artefacts designed by Achille Castiglioni as well as come to know more about his design process by having access to his archives.
Furthermore, the Foundation will supervise research, acquisitions, communication and display of documentation and objects by Achille Castiglioni and more in general cooperate to the future development of design. (source)

ps: recently a little books corner has been opened inside the Foundation thanks to the Edizioni Corraini to offer a curated selection of the texts loved by Castiglioni.
We should also focus on being ironic, like Jacques Tati was, and also not being so strict with design, take society as it is... AC
