Laudani & Romanelli - Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli
Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli, architects, have been collaborating since 1986 in the associated studios of Rome and Milan. They work in the fields of design (for Driade, Montina, Fiam, O luce, Salviati among others), interior decorating (their work has been published in the most important Italian and international journals and, in 2004, they participated in the Biennial Exhibition of Architecture in Venice in the section ““Notizie dall’Interno”) and exhibit design (such as the important anthological exhibition “Gio Ponti: a World” at the London Design Museum and the Triennial Exhibition of Milan in 2002-2003). Recently, in Rome, they designed the restoration of the “Museum of Roman Civilization” for Fiat Engineering. Both flank their design work with intense critical meditation on topics involving living and design: Marta Laudani teaches “History of design” at the master program for curators of museums of contemporary art and architecture at the La Sapienza University in Rome; Marco Romanelli was journalist of the journals Domus and Abitare. Among the numerous editorial works one must recall: "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" (Biennial Glass Exhibition at the Correr Museum in Venice), Electa 2000; "Joe Colombo: interior and lighting design", O luce, 2003.
