Mollino, Carlo

Mollino, Carlo (1905–73). Italian architect. He designed the offices of the Confederazione degli Agricoltori, Cuneo (1933–4), and of the Società Ippica Torinese, Turin (1935–9— destroyed). In the latter he freely interpreted aspects of Neo-Plasticism and Rationalism with considerable verve and originality. He responded to natural landscapes with sensitivity (e.g. the cable-railway station and hotel, Lago Nero (1946–7), and the cable-railway station, Fürggen, Cervina (1950–3) ). At the Camera di Commercio, Turin (1968–73—with Alberto Galardi (1930– ) and Carlo Graffi (1925– ) ) internal columns were avoided. With others he reconstructed Alfieri's Teatro Regio (1738—destroyed 1936), the modern interior of which was constructed behind the C18 exterior.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
