Born in Milan in 1911. Livio Castiglioni graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic of Milan in 1936. He started working with his brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo immediately after the war focusing their attention mainly on city planning, architecture and particularly on design. All the experiments and studies on design were possible thanks to the many exhibitions they designed and where Livio worked as light and sound technician.Pietro Maria Castiglioni Italy (1944 - )
Pietro Maria Castiglioni, known as Piero, born in Lierna (Lecco) in 1944. After graduating in architecture in 1970, he worked with his father Livio in Via Presolana from 1973-1979, mainly specialising in lighting design. In 1968 and 1973 he was asked to work for both 14th and 15th "Triennale di Milano". In 1972 he carried out design work with Ugo La Pietra for the exhibition entitled "Italy: the new domestic landscape" at the "Museum of Modern Art" in New York. They created several lighting designs for public or private Art Galleries, temporary exhibitions, show rooms, offices, hotels and houses both in Italy and in foreign countries. They often designed special execution lights made by craftsmen, eventually resulting in the creation of the "Scintilla" system, manufactured by FontanaArte in 1983. 1992: Genoa - International Expo '92: general interior and outdoor lighting 1994: Milan - "Brera" - Napoleonic rooms: general lighting 1994: Groningen - " Groningen Museum": general interior lighting 1995: Ferrara - Diamanti Palace - Massari Palace pavilion: general interior lighting 1997: Rome - Quirinale Palace: "Sala dei Corazzieri" general interior lighting 1998: Lisbon - "International Exp≥ 90" - general outdoor lighting (premio Design de Ambientes - Premios nNacionais de Design 98/99) 1998: Sao Paulo - "Pinacoteca do Estado": general interior and outdoor lightingLighting system housing halogen bulbs on a single cable or on parallel cables.
