The Museo Casa Mollino conserves the apartment that Carlo Mollino designed for himself on the first floor of the 1888 Villa Avondo, overlooking the River Po in the center of Turin. Mollino’s interior design of the apartment dates to between 1960 and 1968; it was not intended to be his home but represents a private project imagined with a strong symbolism.

The Museum contains almost all the original furnishings designed or chosen by Mollino and precisely arranged in the overall setting. Casa Mollino is complemented by archives of documents, publications and photographs concerning every aspect and period of Mollino’s work.
The Museum promotes the study and awareness of Carlo Mollino’s oeuvre through the publication of books and the organization of retrospective exhibitions. In over 20 years of activity, Casa Mollino has become an international reference point for museums, collectors, and auction houses, providing expertise on Mollino’s vintage furniture and photographs.

After Mollino’s death in 1973, the apartment was saved by the engineer Aldo Vandoni and served as his studio until 1999, when Fulvio Ferrari and Napoleone Ferrari stepped in and established the Museum. With much attentive research and restoration, the apartment has slowly been brought back as much as possible to its original condition, and today it offers a privileged experience to comprehend the complexity of Mollino’s character and work.
