Ettore Sottsass jr’s Archive


Ettore Sottsass archive is a fragmented and dispersed reality. At present only an historical research, together with the application of digital strategies and digitisation practices, could (re)construct it as a complete and coherent network of projects. It is today housed in several different institutions: the funds recently donated to Fondazione Giorgio Cini are now central to an ongoing research study, promoted by IUAV University, Venice, together with the ARCHiVe Centre of the same foundation. The project is part of a multi-annual digitisation and inventorying work: its objective is to offer the access to unpublished primary sources to a wider audience.
