The Inhabited House, a philological reconstruction of the exhibition of the same name held in 1965 at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence.

Part of the Domestic Dimension trilogy of installations designed and produced by Achille Castiglioni (the first two in partnership with his brother Pier Giacomo), The Inhabited House showcases the Room Prepared for Lunch which, along with original designs and photographs conserved in the Foundation’s archives, gives visitors a chance to relive the Castiglioni brothers’ original exhibit.
