Giuseppe Raboni – Partner
Giuseppe Raboni was born in Milano where he graduated in
Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. He worked with Gae Aulenti for several projects in Paris and in Barcelona, in particular the Musée d’Orsay and MNAC. He returned to Italy in 1994 to join the studio of Rosanna Monzini, in which he is currently a partner.
The Monzini Raboni Studio specializes in renovating high end residential projects. In some cases these have a strong architectural component, in which the design spans from the construction all the way to the furniture selection, in others the design involves a careful balance between exitinghistorical biuildings and contemporary interiors. Giuseppe also designed for luxury retail brands such as the Enrico Coveri stores (globally), the Luciano Barbera store in via Montenapoleone, and the flagship store for Rizzoli.
Giuseppe is also a talented prodcut designer and has worked with several international producers.
