A story about

Caroline Corbetta, contemporary art curator, consultant and cultural journalist, introduces us to the value of “Art”: the “magical” capacity of an object to redefine the space around it, to make us transcend everyday life and transport us to a dimension in which imagination, beauty and design identify the deepest essence of our humanity.

'Decorations are like fish in the sea: they exist even if you don’t see them. Ornamentation is positive because it is the narrative element that animates the cold, tautological object.'
Alessandro Mendini

A conversation about

Among the dialogues dedicated to our Centenary, the value of “Art” is illustrated through an intense exchange between Alberto Alessi and Alessandro Mendini’s two daughters, Fulvia and Elisa. In a conversation that is at times intimate and personal, the special nature of the bond between Alessi and one of the most exquisitely “artistic” designers on the international design scene emerges.
