Ten Years of Officina del Volo

Officine del Volo
Officine del Volo

For its tenth birthday one of the most original locations in Milan will show itself to the public through a story of images, within an installation which has been recently inaugurated at the Bistrot Corsia del Giardino in Via Manzoni, in the city center.

Till the 3rd March one can admire the videos and photographs taken by Gabriele Basilico and Matteo Piazzaone during the phases of restoration of the ex-factory, as well as the images of the events that have been hosted in Officine del Volo in the past ten years. This project develops from the desire of the architect Nicola Gisonda to carry out a proper restoration on one of the segments of the ex Caproni aeronautical workshops. Officine del Volo recover and maintain the charm of historic Milanese industrial architecture if the beginning of the 20th century, transforming themselves into a contemporary and dynamic space.

The complex is composed of three halls, each one having peculiar architectural and decorative characteristics (the Monoplano Hall, the Biplano Hall and the Eliche Hall, two of 400 places and one of 200, to which are added a catering area of 140 msq and a load/unloading area), trying to preserve the original materials where possible but also equipped with modern and technological facilities.

The worlds of fashion, art, advertising, cinema and creativity, but also companies and private citizens, have found in this space their ideal location: among the many events hosted, the ones that stand out are the shooting of the film "Chiedimi se sono Felice" by the Italian trio Aldo, Giovanni e Giacomo, and "Happy Family" by Gabriele Salvatores; shooting of programmes such as Masterchef and Fashion Style; advertisements among which those for Fiat and Acqua Vita Snella; events by Eni, BMW, Estee Lauder, the fiftieth anniversary of GQ AMERICA and fashion events by Armani, Calvin Klein, Dsquared Jacob Cohen, Versace and Swarovski.
