From May 8th to July 24th, 2013
Textile Studio Museum at Antonio Ratti Foundation, Como
From May 8th to July 24th, the Textile Studio Museum at Antonio Ratti Foundation in Como will host the exhibition “Città di seta. Quando l'architettura ispira i tessuti del Novecento” (“Silk city. When architecture inspires the fabrics of the XX Century”). The textiles selection on display offers a reflection about the theme of the city in the Twentieth Century; this subject became so predominant as to turn into an iconographic motif for arts and crafts.
The pieces displayed come from prestigious Museums and from the textile industries Clerici Tessuto, Mantero Seta, Ratti S.p.A, Tessitura e Stamperia Luigi Verga, as well as from private collections.
