“Gabriele Basilico – Ascolto il tuo cuore, città” is the first large anthological exhibition of the work of Gabriele Basilico to be held in Milan, the city where he was born in 1944 and lived and worked until 2013, the year of his premature death. It is also one of the first large historic exhibition organized and curated entirely by Unicredit Pavilion, confirming its vocation as a venue for the production and dissemination of culture in its various manifestations.

The photographs on display bear witness to both the coherence of Basilico’s inspiration and to his extraordinary ability to discover the links between various metropolises, constructing, as he put it, “a global location that is the sum of different places.” The exhibition permits the visitor to retrace the artist’s career by means of a series of videos, interviews, documentaries from the 1980s onwards, which act as a sort of guide to the fascinating photographs on display.

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres.

The showroom was launched the following year.
