SAN FRANCISCO - June 14 - 22. "Vivere alla Castiglioni" Exhibition at San Francisco Design Week 2017. An Homage to Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. For the fist time in the United States, the exhibition "Vivere alla Castiglioni" pays tribute to Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, undisputed Italian masters of twentieth-century design. Achille's daughter and son,  Giovanna and Carlo Castiglioni, will visit San Francisco during San Francisco Design Week as representatives of the Fondazione Castiglioni. Within a space recreated with objects designed by their father and uncle, Giovanna and Carlo will bring to life some of the Castiglionis' best-known creations in a small theatrical performance.

The main sponsor of the event is CoorItalia, supplier of high-end architectural materials. The exhibition is made possible by the cooperation of Dzine Living and Alessi Store, Brionvega, FLOS, Karakter and Zanotta, that are generously lending pieces included in the exhibition, and of Studio di Monte Olimpino, that made the video "I fratelli Castiglioni" available for the show. Architect Valentina Anania designed the stand, built with the support of the Academy of Arts University of SF.
