2016 March 3th - Interviewed for 'Domus1000', Mario Bellini - Domus editor from 1986 to 1991

Having had Ernesto Nathan Rogers and Gio Ponti as tutors, Bellini‚Äôs destiny as editor was decided. After the years of a volcanic and unnerving Mendini, Mario Bellini brought a rigorous approach and the touch of an industrial designer to Domus. Born under the sign of Aquarius – on 1 February 1935 – he was organised, curious and open, meeting up with the editorial team every Wednesday morning to discuss plans but, more crucially, to referee the fiery clashes between conservative and progressive factions. His spoke more severely on design – his first passion – than architecture but had great confidence in all. On the other days of the week, the editors were held at bay by his two tireless right-hand men – his future successor Lampugnani and the incredible Lupi.
