Milan Unit and the photographer Ramak Fazel wikiproject

Milan Unit and the photographer Ramak Fazel contribute to the Wikimedia projects in collaboration with the art gallery Viasaterna and Iolanda Pensa.

Cooperation between Milan Unit, Ramak Fazel and the gallery Viasaterna with the Wikimedia projectsEdit

In September 2017 Milan Unit will be presented at the art gallery Galleria Viasaterna in Milan. Milan Unit is the archive produced and collected by the photographer Ramak Fazel while he was living in Italy and he collaborating – among others – with the magazine Domus and the well-known Italian designers Ettore Sottsass and Enzo Mari.

Considering the value of this archive also in documenting the art and architecture scene of Milan, the gallerist Irene Crocco of Viasaterna suggested to link the archive Milan Unit and the work of the photographer Ramak Fazel to the Wikimedia projects. She involved Iolanda Pensa (user:iopensa) and Ramak Fazel liked the idea of contributing to the Wikimedia projects by supporting them with images, new content and his network.

The collaboration started in May 2017 with a review of the archive and the bibliography related to Ramak Fazel's work.
