Past Forward. Designers from the Land of Venice at the Archaeological Museum of Venice, in Piazza San Marco, is the exhibition that displaye the works of 16 designers who live and work today in Venice and its territory.
Combining the masterpieces of ancient art with contemporary design pieces, the exhibition intended to embody the double gaze towards the past and the future that has always characterized Venice. That tight rope, oscillating between the cult of secular traditions and massive biennial assumptions of hyper-contemporaneity, on which the city walks with uncertain and enchanting acrobatics.
