Description Rare , probably unique , Torre di Luce - Large sculpture in alabaster by Angelo Mangiarotti -

Italian designer and architect Angelo Mangiarotti (born February 26, 1921, Milan, Italy–died July 2, 2012, Milan, Italy) He began his architectural training at Politecnico di Milano, earning a degree in architecture in 1948, in the context of a growing criticism towards Rationalism in favor of a greater freedom of expression and simplicity. In 1953, Mangiarotti served as a visiting lecturer at the Illinois Institute of Technology. While in the United States, he got to meet and get acquainted with Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. After his return to Italy in 1955, he opened a studio of architecture with Bruno Morassutti and designed large projects, such as the Via Cantore Skyscraper (1955) in Genova and theMater Misericordiae Church (1956-1957) in Milan, but the duo ended their partnership in 1960. In the same year, Mangiarotti opened a solo studio.
