Cesare Leonardi (1935-2021) and Franca Stagi (1937-2008) were two architects that specialised in industrial design in Modena between 1963 and 1983. Their designs feature in leading design publications and form part of the permanent collections of prestigious museums. They were also known for their use of photography as a means of documentation, inquiry and communication. Between 1970 and 1980 the focus of their studio was architecture: parks and collective spaces whose design involved an intimate relationship with trees and green spaces.

In 1983, the studio was dissolved and Stagi turned her attention towards public architecture and safe guarding historical architectural heritage, while Leonardi undertook independent research in the field of design and town planning, as well as other investigations into photography, sculpture and painting.

In 2010, the Arquitecto Cesare Leonardi Archive was created, with the aim of preserving and disseminating his work. The Franca Stagi Archive was handed over to the Municipal Library of Art Luigi Poletti in Modena, where it was reordered and entered into the inventory in 2011.
