Giovanna Castiglioni - was born in Milan, where she lives, in 1972. She put aside her degree in geology to manage the stratification of projects in her father Achille’s studio, which is now a museum and foundation open to the public. She coordinates the Foundation’s cultural heritage archiving activities and disseminating the “Castiglioni method” to a public of all ages, cultures and interests from all over the world. She supports exhibitions on Castiglioni and is the curator, together with Chiara Alessi and Domitilla Dardi, of the project “100x100 Achille” which presents a collection of more than 100 anonymous objects donated to mark the centenary of the birth of her father by more than 100 international designers.
She gives lectures, lessons and workshops around the world focusing on dynamic interactions with the public, who she always asks to do mental gymnastics and ... she does not yet know what she wants to do when she grows up!
