Abitare una casa
A conversation with Nina Bassoli and Andrea Grotto
September 6, 2023
Houses have always been talked about. In furniture magazines, in architectural studies, in research on the subject, in living room talk.
But in the last couple of years, having been forced to spend most of our time inside the home, the focus has shifted to the concept of inhabiting space and the relationships created within it.
The Milan Triennale, for example, has dedicated the exhibition Home Sweet Home, running until Sept. 10, to the theme of the home.
Its curator, Nina Bassoli, focused on the behaviors people have in domestic space. And she thought of home as an intimate and sentimental dimension.
Andrea Grotto, the author of the Casabase exhibition that I am hosting in the gallery until Sept. 15, also imagined the home as a landscape made of memories, emotions, and symbols that transform the home interior into a personal and symbolic geography.
Where: Nashira Gallery, via Vincenzo Monti 21, Milan
Exhibition visiting hours until September 15: Wednesday through Friday from 4 to 7:30 p.m., Saturday by appointment
