Ico Parisi (Palermo 1916 – Como 1996) was one of the particularly expressive figures of the ‘900 culture. During his career, he works as an architect, as a designer, as the “utopian man” that take on the present and future with a series of provocative and ironic proposals. Its architectural research has often operated in the logic of integration of arts involving contemporary artists in his projects including Mario Radice, Lucio Fontana, Francesco Somaini, Alberto Burri, Fausto Melotti, César, but also people like Michelangelo Antonioni.
