Bisazza Mosaico
Alessandro Mendini – Granada – Louisiana - Ferrara


“Ferrara, Granada, Louisiana are mosaic patterns based on three decorative motifs with geographic references to specific cultures. The three designs and their colours are clearly reminiscent of Italian, Arab and Nordic atmospheres and rhythms. All signs originate from a classical idea of the ornament”
Alessandro Mendini

Bisazza Mosaico 
Ferruccio Laviani – Arzigogolo – Albert Yellow – George Grey


“The two collections have very different references: the first one has the typical Post Deco graphic sign of the 30’s and 40’s, something between André Arbus and the early Gio Ponti. The second collection is inspired by the weaving of fabric, that, because of his structure made of weft and warp, is very similar to the grid of a mosaic.”
Ferruccio Laviani

Venice: Palazzo Fortuny – The Bottega Cadorin - A Dynasty of Venetian Artists exhibition



Venice: Palazzo Fortuny – The Bottega Cadorin - A Dynasty of Venetian Artists exhibition. In the suggestive setting of Palazzo Fortuny, until March 27, The Bottega Cadorin exhibition stems from the need to protect an extraordinary artistic and historical heritage: a record of intense activity by at least three generations of artists, architects, musicians and photographers working in Venice between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The genealogy of this family, who are worthy successors to the great art workshops of the Republic of Venice, represents a unique interweaving of lives under the banner of art, from the sculptor Vincenzo, the photographer Augusto Tivoli and the Fiorini lute-makers, to the architect Brenno del Giudice and the painters Guido Cadorin, Livia Tivoli, Ida Barbarigo and Zoran Music.

The Bottega Cadorin - A Dynasty of Venetian Artists
The exhibition, from an idea by Daniela Ferretti, consists of more than two hundred works carefully curated and selected by Jean Clair, and takes place in the monumental spaces of Palazzo Fortuny, the exhibition itinerary evokes and documents not only the fascinating studios of a dynasty of artists, but also the lively intellectual context of the city.
