It is the emp­ty spa­ces that ha­ve to be de­si­gned as air and light are con­struc­tion ma­te­rials, said Fran­co Al­bi­ni in 1954. This at­ten­tion to light­ness, as well as to pu­ri­ty and ri­gor of form, al­so found ex­pres­sion in his cha­rac­te­ri­stic ten­den­cy ne­ver to say mu­ch about him­self and his works, let­ting them speak for them­sel­ves. For this rea­son too the ex­hi­bi­tion La so­stan­za del­la for­ma, cu­ra­ted by Giam­pie­ro Bo­so­ni and Al­bi­ni’s son Mar­co and or­ga­ni­zed by the Ita­lian In­sti­tu­te of Cul­tu­re in Pa­ris in col­la­bo­ra­tion wi­th the Fon­da­zio­ne Fran­co Al­bi­ni, is pro­po­sed as an in­ti­ma­te and un­pre­ce­den­ted glimp­se of the work of the great ar­chi­tect and de­si­gner al­mo­st for­ty years af­ter his dea­th, th­rou­gh the me­dium of his per­so­nal ob­jec­ts and ma­ny ori­gi­nal pho­to­gra­phs, bea­ring wit­ness to the fun­da­men­tal elec­ti­ve af­fi­ni­ties of his li­fe. The ex­hi­bi­tion, open un­til 30 May, has been sta­ged wi­th the sup­port of Cas­si­na, the com­pa­ny that has been pro­du­cing the ob­jec­ts Al­bi­ni de­si­gned sin­ce 2008.
