Carlo Di Carli (1910-1971)
Carlo di Carli was an italian architect and designer. He graduated from politecnico di milano in 1934. He made the most of his architectural and design works between second world war and the early 70’s. The most significant ones are the residences and office building at via dei giardini 7 in milan. In the basement of those buildings he realized the tiny sant’erasmo theatre, the complex opera don calabria at cimiano, sant’lldefonso church in milan and the elderly shelter in verona. He designed a lot of furniture pieces for the leading craft and industrial design companies. In 1954 de carli won the compasso d’oro. From 1965 to 1968 he was dean of the faculty of architecture of politecnico di milan, where he taught until 1986. His most important writings are collected in the book titled primary space architecture (published in 1982).
