A new beginning by Ilaria Defilippo

Sono passati più di due anni dall'ultimo post pubblicato sul mio blog.

Tante cose sono cambiate da quel periodo, quando avevo ancora un po' di tempo per fare ricerca e pubblicare "appunti" sul mondo dell'exhibition design.

Continuo ad amare profondamente il mondo degli allestimenti, ma insieme a quello ho molte altre passioni di cui vorrei scrivere qui.

Per questo motivo da oggi si volta pagina, grazie anche alla nuova veste grafica che mi sono data e che mi rappresenta perfettamente :-)

The Museum of Innocence by Orhan Pamuk by Ilaria Defilippo

At the end of the Nineties Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk started to collect many objects, he bought an old house in Istanbul and began to write a love story called "The Museum of Innocence". This museum will be realized by the protagonist of the novel, using the same objects collected by Pamuk and showed in the same building bought by the author. From fiction to reality, a great novel and a great museum experience born of the genial mind of a Nobel-Prize writer together with the help of the German architects Sunder-Plassmann. I visited in Stuttgart a very interesting exhibition at Architekturgalerie am Weissenhof about the real Museum of Innocence in Istanbul (opening in 2012!) and I looked at the impressive model of the building together with sketches, photos and objects. Unfortunately no pictures of that exhibition, but a really cool presentation (even if in German) by Baunetz of the fantastic project of Sunder-Plassmann architects that you can download here. Waiting for a visit to Istanbul, I suggest you to buy and read this special novel: it's a kind of inspiration for exhibition designers.
