Luigi Caccia Dominioni was born in Milan on 7 December 1913. He founded Azucena in 1947, together with Ignazio Gardella and Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua, a furniture company which has always been held in the highest esteem as an Italian brand, combining formal elegance, understated luxury. With his reserved aristocratic temperament, he was an epitome of the most authentic Milanese personality: quiet and hard-working, the type of person who considered work to be civil service, to be carried out every day without the need for recognition between the solitude of his drafting table and the organised confusion of the building site. Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Milan’s, and quite possibly the world’s, oldest practicing architect until he died, aged 103, is considered as one of Italy’s greatest.
