INFORMATION COURTESY OF WIKIPEDIA
Carlo De Carli ( Milan , 7 November 1910 - Milan , 3 March 1999 ) was an architect , designer , writer and academic Italian, one of the protagonists of modern architecture, industrial design, and their teaching.
He was born in Milan from a middle-class family with maternal roots on Lake Garda , whose almost Mediterranean nature (olive trees, vines, cypresses, "lemon trees") will be a constant presence in his work. After classical studies and a degree in Architecture, he worked for a year in Gio Ponti's studio , which he will succeed in 1962 at the Politecnico di Milano in the chair of Interior Architecture, Furniture and Decoration.
He realizes most of his works of architecture, set-up and design from the postwar period to the early seventies. His work as a designer closely linked to theoretical thought, puts the person at the center of the project, privileges the process of forming spaces and objects rather than their being and opens up to their reciprocal relationships. It is a constant research that urges him to create new forms contributing to the renewal of taste and trends in Italian architecture and design.
His line of thought is concretized in the architectures created from the postwar period to the early seventies. The first important building dates from 1947-1949, the House for Offices and Homes in via dei Giardini 7 in Milan, in whose basement he will build the Sant'Erasmo Theater (1951-53) in the basement after a few years with the collaboration of the architect Antonio Carminati . The other most significant works are the "Milano village" in La Calettafrom Siniscola, Nuoro (1948-51); the Foresteria delle Mine of Monteponi, South Sardinia (1950-52); the school and welfare complex of the Opera Don Calabria in Cimiano, Milan (professional workshops, middle school, pension for the elderly, Church of San Gerolamo Emiliani) (1952-1965); the Home for the Elderly in Negrar, Verona (1955-62); the Church of Sant'Ildefonso (1955-56) in Milan.
