Celebrating Gae Aulenti
Dinner and Guided Tour

Gae Aulenti is one of the most influential architects and designers of the post-war period. As early as the 1960s, her iconic creations – such as her »Locus Solus« series (1964), the »Pipistrello« (1965) and »King Sun« (1967) lamps – played a vital role in Italy’s global dominance within the field of product design. Explore Aulenti’s multifaceted body of work during an exclusive guided tour and later enjoy an Italian Style Dinner with your family and friends.

The tour will be held in German. Due to current safety and hygiene regulations, we ask for groups to sign up in a timely manner, seating capacity is limited

€ 65.00 per person
