In its eleventh edition, the new "Natale SottoVetro" exhibition presented at the Museo dell'Arte Vetraria Altarese in Altare (province of Savona). This year the exhibition project is dedicated to theMemphisGroup, a design collective founded in Milan in 1980 by Ettore Sottsass.

Visitors can immerse themselves in a reality rich in colors and bold solutions, in a fascinating journey between historical references and a new freedom of expression.
