Carlo Mollino is born in Turin in 1905. He studies architecture and in 1953 he becomes professor of architecture composition at the Turin University. So much important as architecture are the furnishing, the furniture as unique pieces, publications and critical books. He also has several interests such as ski, mechanics, racing cars, aereal acrobatics and photography. In 1945 E. Scopinich publishes the monographic book Ritratti ambientali. He builds between 1936-1960 some 'houses' where to set his pictures, which from an interest for surrealism and symbolism in black and white photos arrive to a specific women portrait, at first in colour them polaroid.Carlo Mollino died in 1973, while still working.
