Great success for the second edition of “Design the Italian excellence”, the site-specific project curated by Vincenzo Basile of Basile Arteco on display until Spring 2014 at the newly refashioned Caffè Baglioni of the Carlton Hotel Baglioni in Milan.
This edition is entirely dedicated to contemporary women designers: great Master Gae Aulenti, Monica Castiglioni with her incredible jewels, Donata Paruccini, presenting one of her sophisticated, charming projects, Elena Cutolo, one of Ettore Sottsass’s team in the last working years of the Maestro, Giorgia Zanellato and Valentina Carretta, who share the experience of working in the international team of La Fabrica in Treviso (Central Italy), are the Authors and Designers selected for this exhibition.
“Design the Italian excellence” exhibit is an extension of the previous collaboration “Luxury is not a Waste”, which is housed in the stunning Roman Penthouse of the Regina Hotel Baglioni in Rome. Both projects are reflections of the culture and continuous innovation of the Italian design that Baglioni Hotels and Basile Arteco represent, telling the story of quality Italian art and design. The past, present and future of Italy’s excellence in design is captured in each piece, showing the strong links between Italy’s history and contemporary approach to creativity.
Caffè Baglioni. Meet the Style.
