In spite of the recognition gained by his early furniture design – such as the Rocking chair, designed with Franca Stagi in 1967 and featured in the foundational MoMA exhibition “Italy: The New Domestic Landscape” – most of Leonardi’s oeuvre has remained little known, even within Italy. The exhibition “Cesare Leonardi: Strutture”, organized in close cooperation with Leonardi’s archive, sheds light on a body of work that is at once intimate and multifaceted.
