Carlo De Carli (1910 - 1999)

This is a fonds of materials relating to the work of architect Carlo De Carli who graduated from the Politecnico in 1934 and worked as an architect, university professor from 1948 in Interior Architecture, Furniture and Decor at the Politecnico di Milano and dean of the Architecture Faculty from 1965 to 1968.

His work as professor and dean of the Architecture Faculty is covered by 49 binders and 22 files while the material documenting his work at the Triennial amounts to 16 binders. There are also 7 binders relating to his dealings with furniture producing centres and 50 ring binders (plus 2 miscellaneous boxes and 1 album in a different format) containing mainly photographic material intended for a book on the history of furniture from antiquity to modern times.

Held at the Archivi Storici since January 2012.
