Achille Castiglioni & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and his brother Livio Castiglioni, founded their architecture practice Studio Castiglioni in 1938 designing buildings, interiors, and design objects. In 1944 Pier's younger brother Achille Castiglioni joined the studio and used their design skills to restore buildings damaged during the Second World War. This work demonstrated the skill and passion the Castiglionis had for their craft. Eventually Livio left to found his own practice in 1953 and left Achille Castiglioni & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni to keep the studio going by themselves.
