FORNASETTI PRESENTA: A DIALOGUE AROUND WOMEN’S SILENCE



To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Fornasetti hosts a dialogue around women’s silence on Monday 25 November in its Milanese store in Corso Venezia. 

A journey into that “muting”, imposed and suffered, described through the words of: Nicoletta Polla-Mattiot, journalist at IlSole 24 Ore and author of the book “FEMMINILE SINGOLARE. Perché le donne devono fare silenzio” (SINGULAR FEMININE. Why women must be silent), and Stefano Raimondi, poet and author of “SOLTANTO VIVE. 59 monologhi” (JUST ALIVE. 59 monologues), Mimesis publications. 

Raffaella Calandra, journalist at Radio 24, will have a discussion with the authors. 

The initiative is part of “Fornasetti presenta” series, a project the Milanese atelier devotes to dialogue between diverse forms of artistic expression, from literature to performance, from poetry to visual arts, from music to design.

THE NEW FORNASETTI AT HARRODS


Fornasetti opens its new boutique in the historic department store on Brompton Road, London. 
Located inside Harrods, in the Luxury Home section of the renovated Interiors Department on the third floor, seventy square metres of surface narrate the visual universe of the Italian atelier in a broad and representative way, through a studied selection of objects. 
For this special occasion Fornasetti has created the “Queen Lina” wall plate, a new variation in the iconic “Tema e Variazioni” series, available exclusively at Harrods and Fornasetti, Milan. Inspired by the British punk movement, the design of the plate combines the famous Fornasetti icon of the female face with symbols of Britain from different eras.

FORNASETTI PRESENTA: S/OGGETTI PARZIALI BY CARLO DELL’ACQUA



“Fornasetti Presenta” is the new multi-purpose art space jointly created by Barnaba Fornasetti, artistic director of the atelier, and Valeria Manzi, the co-curator of cultural projects. A space where Fornasetti’s world mingles with other art forms.
The project, which started earlier this year with the collaboration with the British artist Anj Smith, is set to continue with the “S/Oggetti parziali” by Carlo Dell’Acqua. 
Invited to work with some of Fornasetti’s most iconic pieces, Dell’Acqua has readily accepted the challenge by focusing on the symbol of the atelier’s creativity: the face of Lina Cavalieri. The artist has manipulated, torn to pieces, annihilated and then reassembled Fornasetti porcelains, giving new life to the face of the famous soprano. The entire series of works will be displayed for the first time ever.

S/OGGETTI PARZIALI
by Carlo Dell’Acqua
from 25 September to 16 November 2019
Opening 24 September 2019, 6.30pm
