The project “100 Italian Design Vases”, created in collaboration with the publisher SKIRA, aims to narrate the design of Italian vases in the 20th and 21st centuries through an intriguing journey of evolution that starts from historical influences and reaches contemporary challenges in the field. In the 20th century, the art of Italian vase-making, blending craftsmanship tradition and technological innovation, has given birth to distinctive works such as those by Giò Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, and Ettore Sottsass. This exhibition, composed of 20 panels, including 10 with texts narrating the history and concepts behind the artistic form of the vase, and 10 showcasing selected beautiful vase images, will be displayed at the Italian Institute of Culture from April 3rd until May 10th.
