Poltronova Backstage is a foray into the past of the Italian furniture company Poltronova. It is a snapshot of those radical years, from 1962 to 1972, seen through the work of Archizoom, Ettore Sottsass, and Centro Studi Poltronova and never narrated in such a complete way until now, thanks to the photographs taken by the authors of their own works. These are accompanied by the personal recollections of Dario Bartolini, Andrea Branzi, Gilberto Corretti, Paolo Deganello, Adolfo Natalini, Cristina Morozzi, Barbara Radice, and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia.
