GALLERIA VITTORIA, ROME: AN INTERVIEW WITH TIZIANO M. TODI

The Galleria Vittoria located in Via Margutta in Rome is one of those places which have livened up the Roman cultural environment since the 1970s.
The first exhibition was that of Pericle Fazzini, author of the bronze sculpture depicting the “Resurrection of Christ” (1977) which is now on display in the Sala Nervi in the Vatican, and since then the Galleria Vittoria has never stopped, making room for major Italian and foreign artists.

I interviewed Tiziano M. Todi who represents the third generation of the Galleria Vittoria and who really began moving his first steps in the artistic environment when he was a child.
Here is what he told me about the past and the future of the Galleria Vittoria.

EAMES PLASTIC CHAIR: THE FIRST PLASTIC CHAIR IN HISTORY

There’s a chair on which we’ve sat at least once. If there’s one thing that can never be missing in a doctor’s waiting room or in an office, that’s a Plastic Chair, a 1950s-style chair, with or without arms, and which can be joined laterally with another chair.

The Eames Plastic Chair is the first real plastic chair which was awarded the second prize at the “Low cost” competition organized by the MoMA in 1948, and which since 1950 has been mass-produced (at the end of the post you’ll find the link to Vitra, the current producer).
