The Cool Couple

Milan, AF

The Cool Couple (often shortened to TCC) is an innovative photography partnership, established in 2012 in Milan. Its two halves - Niccolò Benetton (b.1986, Italy) and Simone Santilli (b. 1987, Italy) - undertake each artistic venture as a research project. Their creations are the result of engaging with a diverse range of practices, mediums and individuals, including electrostatic wipes and meditation rooms. When not working together in a shared studio space, the duo regularly guest lecture, hold workshops, participate in the POIUYT project, write for and edit Genda Magazine, and perform in the trendsetting cover band Rui & the Rainbow Dragons.
