TERRAZZO was a very special biannual publication
on architecture and design, edited and published
between 1988–1995 by Barbara Radice, a prominent
Italian author, design critic and member of the
Memphis Milano design group. In conjunction with
Ettore Sottsass, Christoph Radl, Anna Wagner and
Santi Caleca, Radice created a unique and thoughtful
periodical that focused on contemporary works of
design and architecture, within Italy and abroad, touching
on a vast array of disciplines in each issue, including literature,
poetry, history, science, philosophy, art and anthropology.
