A. and P.G. Castiglioni, Heritage of pesticides for agriculture, Fiera di Milano, Montecatini Pavillion, Italy, 1955
The room is dedicated to the exhibition of “Montecatini antiparasitic” for agriculture. The local is divided into different environments covered by white gauzes, with natural wooden supporting structures. The first environment and introductory, the second hosts a great graphic demonstration of research and a third the exhibition of products. These objects are connected by a suggestive gallery in which they are arranged numerous insects and parasites, dilated and made of plastic, the mirror-like wall multiplies the number. The tunnel is not traversed longitudinally, but through a serpentine path. It is lit by low lamps with daylight fluorescent lamps placed in horizontal panels in the box of the showcases, and recalls a membrane-diffuser made of synthetic material.
