Mario Gottardi was an Italian architect who marked the history of Italian 20th century design, yet his work is extremely difficult to find on the market.
He was a true innovator of forms and a designer of great creative invention. Strongly influenced by Bauhaus and Rationalism, he reinterpreted these styles in a contemporary manner through a careful calibration between form and function through his stylistic code.
His work is characterized by creative and rigorous architectural solutions, without ever being repetitive.
He was responsible for important private and public projects including the interiors of the Hotel Bauer in Venice, the San Babila Theater in Milan and the interiors of the cruise ships Cristoforo Colombo and Leonardo da Vinci.
Provenance: Villa Marinotti, a private home designed and furnished entirely by Mario Gottardi.

Mario Gottardi


Born in 1913, Mario Gottardi's creative work was largely inspired by the 1930s. The period of the 1930s is epitomised by the conflict between a number of political ideologies, including Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. Surrealism continued to dominate in Europe, and had influence worldwide. Artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera in Mexico, worked to integrate the ideas posed by Surrealism into their revolutionary political ideologies, developing a new kind of magic realism.
