Luigi Caccia Dominioni

Olivari designers

Milano, 1913-2016

Proudly independent of the Italian architectural panorama, Caccia Dominioni designs several residential buildings in Milan, from the house in Piazza Sant’Ambrogio (1947) to one in Piazza Carbonari (1961). These manage to intertwine modern architecture with affection for tradition. This same aristocratic attitude is found in his products like the Catilina armchair (1958) for Azucena, a company he cofounds.
