The exhibition entitled CARO JOE COLOMBO, CI HAI INSEGNATO IL FUTURO (DEAR JOE COLOMBO, YOU TAUGHT US ABOUT THE FUTURE), curated by Ignazia Favata and organised by Suazes in conjunction with the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Milan and Joe Colombo archive, is dedicated to him and his irrepressible imagination constantly projected into the future.
