Massimo Iosa Ghini

Olivari designers

Bologna, 1959

Immediately after his studies in architecture in Florence at the university where several radical groups were born, Ghini founds the Bolidism movement in 1985; this explicitly refers to Italian Futurism, American streamlining, and pop culture.

Thanks to his visionary projects, he is immediately successful and designs a collection of Moroso furniture and the Bolidò discotheque in New York (1988).
