Turkey: Italian design and architecture in Ankara and Istanbul


The Embassy of Italy in Turkey, in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture of the Bilkent University, is organizing two evenings in Ankara and Istanbul dedicated to design and architecture with particular tribute to Caccia Dominioni, an important surname made famous by two characters, cousins among them: Paolo Caccia Dominioni, military, writer, engineer and designer and Luigi Caccia Dominioni, architect, designer and urban planner. On September 10 in Ankara Cristina Pallini of Politecnico di Milano will present the work of architect Paolo Caccia Dominioni (1896-1992) who designed the headquarters of the Embassy of Italy and directed the work of its construction in Ankara between 1938-1940.
During the evening, a display of works from the Azucena Collection by Luigi Caccia Dominioni (1913-2016) will be on display. The Italian brand Azucena has always produced handcrafted furniture and design objects, distinguishing itself for its objects that combine formal elegance, understated luxury, pure aesthetics and a very high manufacturing. An “Open Day” will be organized for the occasion, during which the Embassy of Italy will open its doors to students and professors of the Department of Architecture of the University of Bilkent who will have the opportunity to learn about the history and architectural characteristics of the building. In Istanbul, on the other hand, the Palazzo di Venezia, the residence of the Italian Ambassador, will host on 12 September the exhibition of works from the Azucena Collection, chairs, sofas, tables and lamps that have written the history of Made in Italy design and that bear witness to class and quality.
