Turin, Italy. 18th century villa. Casa Mollino. The home of Carlo Mollino in which he never actually lived.
“Mollino designed the rooms from 1960 through to 1968 as a lavish and intricate settings for one of his more obsessive photographic interests, female portraits to create an inexplicable, vast collection of erotica.” Magali Elali
After Mollino’s death , an engineer bought the house and changed a lot of things. But 28 years later the house was turned into a museum and thanks to Mollino’s private letters and documents the house was re-created.
I simply loved this place! For the full amazing story go to All Items Loaded. Photographs by Bart Kiggen.
