From Ettore Sottsass to Marco Zanini. Glass in the 1980s

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. The aim of the group was to go beyond the Modernism of the 1970s, characterized by essential, minimalist forms, in giving life to a new aesthetic, with bright colors and eccentric, playful shapes. The exhibition proposes a series of objects characterized by the originality of the Memphis Group, from furnishings to whimsical glass creations. Visitors can immerse themselves in a reality rich in colors and bold solutions, in a fascinating journey between historical references and a new freedom of expression.
