Italia (2022) 85 min.

Architect, Designer, Sculptor. Three labels in strict alphabetical order, three aspects of a unique designer: Angelo Mangiarotti.

Certainly, one of the most multifaceted and, in some ways, “asymmetrical” personalities on the Italian scene, a proponent of cross-disciplinary research, almost a “lone fighter” with respect to the evolution of the dominant schools of thought in postwar Italy

The documentary film aims to investigate the figure of Angelo Mangiarotti in the context of twentieth-century Italian design culture, with particular regard to his attitude and sensitivity to matter and materials.

Interviews with his collaborators, clients and friends will explore points of contact and resonances between the various disciplines in which he worked, in an attempt to reconstruct his depth of thinking, his marked tension towards innovation and the intrinsic poetry of his creations.
