In Turin, Piero Gobetti’s desk returns to its former glory

Exhibited in the study of the center named after the Turin intellectual

The desk of Piero Gobetti, journalist, philosopher and publisher from Turin, has returned to its former glory. The piece of furniture, a typical construction of the time, in chestnut wood, with dovetailed drawers, dating back to the early 1900s, was restored by the Antichità Radogna workshop and has come back to life in the building in via Fabro in Turin. where the study center named after him is located, which turned sixty-two on 16 March. Gobetti worked on his intellectual work for a long time on his desk and today it can be visited again in the studio used over the years by Gobetti’s wife, Ada Prospero.

The restoration was made possible by the donation of two friends from the Piero Gobetti Study Center, the Cavalieri del Lavoro Bruno Ceretto, a wine entrepreneur who likes to call himself “Gobettian by nature”, and Enrico Salza who explained “it was important to make a gesture of generosity and attention to a good that testifies to the greatness of the purest liberal thought”.

Tomorrow, in the meantime, the program of events scheduled to celebrate ‘The ideal publisher’ will be presented. One hundred years after Piero Gobetti’s publishing house promoted by the cultural center of the same name.
