Ignazio Gardella in Ivrea

Cod.: COM0001

“Dear Olivetti, I would like to tell you that the task I have been entrusted with is particularly pleasing to me because I appreciate the value of your trust, knowing full well the weight you have had and have in the development of the modern architecture movement in Italy.
So wrote Ignazio Gardella to Adriano Olivetti after agreeing to design the Ivrea factory’s Canteen and Recreation Centre. A place that, Gardella recalls, in Olivetti’s eyes had to be a meeting and rest for workers, and where the quality of architecture had to play a decisive role.
