Interface HUB/ART presents architAMORfosi by Matteo Galvano, curated by Roberta Macchia and Greta Zuccali, a project that offers a new interpretation of urban spaces starting from the analysis of architectural elements. The exhibition will be open from June 13th to September 8th.

With the support of Interface Facility Management and Sharebot Monza.

Matteo Galvano is an artist from Como, icastic and rational, known for his ballpoint pen technique that has allowed him to develop the ability to modulate the infinite range of greys to the softest black. His work, characterized by the sharpness and visual clarity, develops the study of architectural elements encountered during his travels. From this study, is born in 2014 the series “architAMORfosi” (officially presented at the Italian Pavilion during EXPO 2015) in which, through drawings made in black and white, Galvano rewrites with the sign of the “ballpoint” his personal vision of urban architecture, suggesting new spatial-temporal coordinates.

Interface HUB / Novocomum / Matteo Galvano

On display, during this exhibition, even three works exhibited for the first time in 3D format.

The building that houses the exhibition – Interface HUB – created by Attilio Terragni in 2012, which meets the Novocomum in Como, designed by Giuseppe Terragni at the end of the 1920s; the monumental Makedomium in Krusevo, which merges with the Fiore di Pietra by Mario Botta; and finally the Arena in Verona, which meets the student residence Tietgen Kollegiet in Copenhagen.


The great protagonist is, therefore, the reflection on the architecture, which – understood as the art of giving shape to spaces usable by man- plays on the contrast between the static nature of buildings and the dynamism of the city.


The exhibition marks the beginning of a new path of research for the exhibition space Interface HUB/ART. architAMORfosi wants to begin to deepen the issues related to architecture and design, offering visitors different opportunities to discover the themes.

For the 3D section, the artist was joined by Lorenzo Manzoni, co-designer and eyewear designer, and Riccardo Gatti expert in 3D modelling. The projects were printed by Sharebot Monza, a company whose core business is based on 3D service, the sale of Sharebot 3D printers and qualified technical assistance to companies, professionals and individuals.

The exhibition is supported by Interface Facility Management, Sharebot Monza and CR Design Studio and sponsored by the Order of Architects of Milan.
