It has been 24 years since Adriano Salani Editore published the first volume (in Italian) of the now legendary series of books about the wizard Harry Potter. Last January, the publishing house decided to commission Michele De Lucchi to redesign the covers of the saga that began with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and ended in 2007 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The former editor-in-chief of Domus decided to put architecture at the centre of the new illustrations, designing seven new buildings that reinterpret the main settings of the story. To tell the story of the creative process behind the final result, De Lucchi opened his studio in Via Varese, Milan, and organised a small exhibition that, in addition to books, features sketches, drawings, graphics and his famous wooden models. The show is part of "@ the Circle", a series of events hosted by the AMDL Circle studio, and will be open to the public until 26 February 2021.
