Fondo Passanti

The Fondazione De Fornaris makes the digitized Fondo Passanti Fund available to the public of experts and interested persons. The archive of the architect and professor Mario Passanti (Rosario de Santa Fé, 1901 – Turin 1975), donated by his sons to the Foundation in 1992, includes drawings, manuscripts, projects, photographs, plates, negatives, albums, sketches, for a total of over 15,000 elements.

The cataloguing and acquisition work, conducted by Benedetta Bodo d’Albaretto and Francesca Cena, involved two distinct campaigns that allow today to have complete digital documentation of the designer’s artistic, professional and study material. Over two years of work have led to a significant increase in knowledge of the Fund, also contributing to improving the safety of materials.
