Be Modern is a project curated by Cinzia Ferrara and Monika Unger, both architects and passionate and knowledgeable collectors of mid Century Design.
Be Modern is committed to conserve and promote 20th Century design heritage through initiatives that include exhibitions, presentations, press activities and research.
In our activity we encourage the collaboration with museums, art galleries and other dealers in order to share an original point of view about modernist style.
