Italy, 1931 - 1997
Aldo Rossi was an Italian architect and designer who accomplished the unusual feat of achieving international recognition in four distinct areas: theory, drawing, architecture and product design. He was the first italian to receive the Pritzker Prize for architecture. In 1984 designed products for Alessi, and in 1987 for Unifor (now part of Molteni Furniture). His well known espresso maker La Conica, designed for Alessi came out in 1984.
His life as an architect started with Gardella and Zanuso. An author of abstraction, reduction and brevitas, his severe language of primary shapes, geometrical patterns and silent evocation created some of the most intensely poetic works of architecture and design in his age.
