Ambrogio's House, Alessandro Mendini/ Bruno Gregori/ Carla Ceccariglia, Milan 1983

'What if a stage is designed like an ordinary home, or, vice versa, a home like a stage? Or can a play be performed in the home? In order to create a home like a stage, the stage props, the furniture and all the other objects have been arranged in such a way that they would express a "drama in the house". The house shown here belongs to the photographer Ambrogio Beretta, and the furniture is what he uses in his own everyday life.'    

Taken from 'Alchimia', K. Sato, 1988
