To mark the centenary of the birth of Ettore Sottsass (Innsbruck 1917 - Milan 2007), the Triennale Design Museum presents the spaces of the Architecture Gallery, an exhibition dedicated to him. The exhibition is accompanied by a book, There is a Planet, which features photographs taken by Sottsass during his travels around the world: pictures of architecture, houses, doors, people, situations involving the lives and the general presence of man on the planet.
