Amore, musei, ispirazione. Il Museo dell'Innocenza di Orhan Pamuk a Milano / Love, Museums and Inspiration. The Museum of Innocence of Orhan Pamuk in Milan
The writer Orhan Pamuk, together with the main character of his homonymous book, says that he was inspired by Milan’s Museo Bagatti Valsecchi when conceiving the Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, due to both the similarity of the works on display (“ordinary everyday objects”) as well as the way the objects are displayed.
The fit-out by Piero Lissoni, where the museum behind the inspiration plays hosts to the one it inspired, naturally follows this dialogue between the two: on the one side respecting the austere aristocratic elegance and quality of the materials of the ornamentations; on the other exalting their identity, which is half way between reality and fiction and communicated through a dreamlike vision and an undulating narrative.
This intention fits very well with the stylistic code of Lissoni Associati in the simplicity of the design, the organization of the volumes, the choice of materials and the attention to detail.
Since 2015 Lissoni Associati has been an active supporter of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum in Milan, curating the exhibition fit-outs and becoming an institutional partner in 2017.
