Laudani Marta e Romanelli Marco
Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli, architects, have worked together since 1986 in their associated studios in Rome and Milan. They work in the fields of design (for Driade, Fiam, Laboratorio Pesaro, O luce, Salviati, Glas, among others), interior architecture (their work has been published in the main Italian and international magazines and, in 2004, they participated in the Venice Architecture Biennial in the “Notizie dall’Interno” section), exhibit design (it is worth mentioning the important anthological exhibition “Gio Ponti: a World” at the Design Museum in London and at the Triennale di Milano, in 2002-2003; in 2005, “Axolute Style Tech”, at the Triennale di Milano, commissioned by B ticino and, in 2008, in Tokyo, “Bruno Munari: vietato l’accesso agli addetti ai lavori”). In Rome, on behalf of Fiat Engineering, they designed the restoration of the “Museum of Roman Civilisation” at EUR. For both of them, their design work goes hand in hand with an intense critical reflection on the themes of living and design. Their numerous editorial works include: Gli spazi del cucinare: appunti per una storia italiana 1928-1957, Electa, 1990; Design Nord-Est: Bonfanti, Bianconi, Pinton, Rinaldi, Scarpa, Valle, Abitare Segesta, 1997; Aperto Vetro (Biennale del vetro al Museo Correr di Venezia), Electa, 2000; Gio Ponti: A World, Abitare Segesta, 2002; Joe Colombo: interior and lighting design, O luce, 2003; Il design della Gioia (with Alba Cappellieri), Skira, 2004; Bruno Munari: vietato l’accesso agli addetti ai lavori, Corraini, 2008; Lorenzo Damiani: ma dove sono finiti gli inventori, Electa, 2009. Marco Romanelli was also editor of Domus magazine from 1986 to 1994 and of Abitare magazine from 1995 to 2007. In 2011 he curated the major exhibition “Meet: Design una storia italiana” on behalf of RCS.
