Curated by Galleria Maggiore | Maggiore Design
Sharing the location with the central exhibition, Innovation in the Sign of History was a collective show that occupied the ground floor of Palazzo Loredan. The exhibition was curated by Galleria Maggiore/Maggiore Design under the guidance of Roberta Calarota and Simonetta Vespa.
The project originated with the works that the renowned designer Cleto Munari made in collaboration with artists like Alessandro Mendini, Mario Botta, Ettore Sottsass and some of the main protagonists of the Transvanguardia movement as Mimmo Paladino and Sandro Chia in the field of painting. The resultant furniture and design items were pieces where unique aesthetics meet solid functionality. The exhibition also presented works of Nouveau Realisme by Arman, but also other pieces signed by Bertozzi & Casoni, Pablo Echaurren, Hsiao Chin, Giosetta Fioroni and Jessica Carroll.
The strength of the project proposed by Maggiore Design was to create a dialogue among different personalities coming from international cultures, letting them express freely and transforming the sharp world of design into a universe of uncountable creative possibilities.
