Viabizzuno talks

For Mario Nanni the project is the result of a deep philosophical research, the maximum expression of the relationship with the life in its context. Interest in the luminous matter, the relationship with “archistars” or guru architects and international collaborations have led the Viabizzuno designers to experiment and design luminescent bodies looking for new challenges, designing new lighting systems and original museum exhibits.

The event will take place at the Liceo Sarpi, Piazza Rosate 4, and not at the residence.

Event by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio Director of GAMeC - Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Bergamo.

Alessandro Guerriero talks

Alessandro took his first steps in Alchimia, helping to make it one of the most important centres in the evolution of the Italian avant-garde design, with works in the permanent collections of the most prestigious museums in the world. In 1984, Guerriero won the Compasso d’Oro award for design research, and he became a founding member of Domus Academy.

Atelier Biagetti talks

established a solid professional relationship with Venini and exhibited in prestigious museums in the world.
The alter ego of Biagetti, Laura Baldassari, directs his creativity on the fusion of genres and on the interdisciplinary nature of the work that from painting touches the design, passing through the contemporary musical theatre.
