Published to accompany the eponymous retrospective at the Milan Triennial, and spanning almost 60 years of design, architecture, exhibition design and more, this volume on the acclaimed Italian architect Mario Bellini (born 1935) appears exactly 30 years after his exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

That 1987 exhibition examined his activities as a designer; the year proved to be a watershed for Bellini, who from then on devoted himself primarily to architecture and urban design. Italian Beauty is therefore a tribute to the multifaceted achievement of a designer who has achieved success on both the small scale (with objects and furnishings that have become icons in homes and offices around the world), and the large (conference centers, trade-fair venues, the Department of Islamic Art at the Louvre and museums from Japan to the USA, Germany and Australia).

Kenneth Frampton is the Ware Professor of Architecture at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University.
