Cinzia Says...
Cinzia Ruggeri
Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan & MACRO—Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome, 2022, 416 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 22 × 32 cm, English / Italian
Price: €50

Artist and fashion designer Cinzia Ruggeri (1942–2019) made her artistic research a tool for inquiry into the functional and semantic properties of the object and the architectural and social dimension of the body, according to an original and nonconformist perspective enriched by irony and oneirism.

Cinzia Says… is the first monograph on this unconventional figure who moved across disciplines with absolute freedom. Her life and versatile practice were driven by the desire to redefine the formal and functional status of elements of everyday life, from apparel to accessories, from furnishings to lighting. Ruggeri created imaginative, provocative, elegant, and never predictable worlds. This book is constructed as a broad, expanded chronology offering documents, photographs, accounts, and essays.
