Ico Parisi

Domenico Parisi, called Ico, was born in Palermo in 1916 and then moved with his family to Como in 1925, a city where, after his studies, he served an apprenticeship at the Terragni studio. Here he had the opportunity to frequent and get to know personalities of Como architecture and art. His activity, marked by continuous experimentation, is an incessant research in the fields of architecture, art and design. In the latter field, his encounters with Munari and Fontana were crucial and marked his working experience in a profound way. Starting in the early 1950s, Parisi concentrated his projects in both architecture and design. He creates furnishing objects by collaborating with artisans from Brianza, starting from one-off pieces to industrial-level production. He later joined companies such as Cassina, producing numerous furnishing objects and decorative art elements with ceramics and glass. In 1954 he was awarded the Gold Medal at the 10th Milan Triennale with his work Padiglione Soggiorno. The peak of his research is between 1974 and 1976 with "Operation Arcevia" with the intention of designing a small village in the hinterland of the Marche region. The work was presented at the 76th Venice Biennale and then exhibited at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.
