A fairy tale reveals the affinities between ceramics and glass

15/07/2023 - 08/10/2023

A corollary of the 100% exhibition. A centenary and a hundred pieces: Richard Ginori and Gio Ponti in a Lavenese collection, the MIDeC of Laveno presents an exhibition project, A fairy tale in ceramics and glass: the dialogues of Margherita (Grasselli) and Pinocchio (Massimo Lunardon), which gives rise to an atmosphere of magical and poetic dialogue between the two protagonists Pinocchio, made of glass, and Margherita, in ceramic. The affinities emerge, more real and intriguing than they may seem, between glass and ceramics, materials shaped by the skill of the craftsmen and, in different ways and at different times, generated by fire. MIDeC, Museo Internazionale Design Ceramico Lungolago Perabò 5 Cerro di Laveno Mombello +39 0332 625551
