Abstract

Ico Parisi (Palermo, 1916–Como, 1986) was one of the driving forces behind the interior design revolution that took place in Italy in the mid-twentieth century. An eclectic character, a ‘Renaissance’ artist, as he defined himself, he stood out for his untiring efforts to bring together architecture and the arts in their plurality.

This book, dedicated to his design work, provides the first, exhaustive catalogue of the exceptional body of furniture items and interior design accessories designed by Parisi, from his early collaborations with Cantù artisans in the 1940s through to his industrial production in the 1960s.
