The 2019 is coming to its end and we’d love to celebrate it with an overview of the main art and design project we’ve dealt with throughout the year. Some of these are born under our personal direction and our Firm, in some others we have had the lucky chance to be involved in.
Let’s start with Giovanna’s best 2019 art projects.
The Vigne Museum this year hosted “Architecture of Intelligence” the experience/exhibition by Giuseppe Stampone and Dom Mimì organised in collaboration with of RAVE East Village Artists Residency.
followed by the amazing project 10×100 Contemporary Art Factory organized to celebrate Giovanardi’s 100 years activity to the most important project of the year
Casa Trentini – Atemporary Art Apartments in Trento, the pilot project of a network of places in the world where art and hospitality merge together.
CARTE is the name of the collection of artistic wallpaper projects that characterise all the Atemporary Art Apartments. Three special concepts by Patrick Tuttofuoco, Donatella Spaziani and Riccardo Previdi qualify each of the three mini lofts in Trento, but CARTE is due to continue growing to become a widespread exhibition of artists’s works on wallpaper.
Last but not least the collaboration with Trentino Art Academy with the teaching experience of Antropology of Art to 20 driven students.
Let’s continue with Samantha’s main design projects – but in some cases we should call them total projects – followed as press office manager or born under her personal supervision.
Purho is an amazing small brand dealing with Murano blown glass. To enhance its potential, this year the Company opened up to a limited edition series of lighting pieces and furniture all by Filippo Feroldi merging glass and fabrics developed with the strategic collaboration of Colleoni Arte staged at 5Vie District during the MDW19.
For the second year in a row, the Design Boutique Hotel Ca’ Pisani invited Samantha to coordinate an exhibition on the occasion of The Venice Glass Week 2019. Purho was once again involved with a special tribute to Alessandro Mendini and the never seen before Stella tray produced in Murano. Definitely stellar!
What about Maravee, the festival conceived, curated and directed by Sabrina Zannier, main sponsored by Gervasoni? Amazing and rich as usual!
This year the “objects” took centre stage at “Verde Respiro / Green Breathe” at Palazzo Elti and “Esplosi e ricreati / Exploded and recreated”, the main project at Castello di Susans with names in the likes of Anotherviewproject, Paola Tassetti, Simone Miani, PiattoUnico… just to mention a few.
We’re not used to make a list of fav projects mainly because we try to stay focused on things we love, to work with designers, artists, curators, AD and creatives we appreciate and support — ever — but Punta Conterie, the new cultural and f&w hub born in Murano has a special place in our heart. Not only because of the high quality of the project, definitely a must see place, but for the extremely unique courage and vision of the entrepreneurs that stand behind it.
There’s too much to say about it, from the renovation of the place to the inaugural project “Lino Tagliapietra. Glasswork” , from the refined food and wine proposals to the green and art shop located inside the venue… so take your time to browse the official website and make sure to pay a visit to this magical corner of the Venetian lagoon.
In between many other projects took our time and passion, from Italesse new amazing tasting and glassware projects to Premio Amidei – Best International Screenplay Award that allows us to step back once a year to the world of cinema, one of our first love to… to be continue in 2020!
Last but not least, a special thank you to the small but extraordinarily efficient and loving team of the studio: Camilla and Valentina! All this wouldn’t be possible without your sharp mind and creative eye!
