Beppe Caturegli

(Pisa, Italy, 1957)

Beppe Caturegli was educated in the cultural climate of Radical Architecture in Florence. After graduating in Architecture in 1982, he moved to Milan to start a collaboration with Ettore Sottsass, the Memphis Group, and Terrazzo magazine. In 1987, he opened the Caturegli Formica Architetti Associati studio together with Giovannella Formica. Their work was very heterogeneous, ranging from residential and commercial architecture to renovation, from interiors to furniture, from lamps to cutlery, from paintings and ceramics to video. Since 1988, Caturegli has worked to define the relationship between art and knowledge through symbols. He has been invited to give lectures for the University of Chicago, the University of Washington D.C. and the Politecnico di Milano. His works, together with those of Formica, have been exhibited at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg; the Centre G. Pompidou in Paris; the Mino Ceramic Art Museum in Tajimi, Japan; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Triennale di Milano.
