Levi donation: on display at the Project Room the airbrush decorated ceramics of the ’30s

For the first time the MIC-Museo Internazionale delle ceramiche in Faenza hosts the works donated by the scholar and collector Giorgio Levi. An exhibition of 35 pieces decorated with airbrush from the 1930s. The first examples of the airbrush technique applied to ceramics date back to the modernist climate of the Weimar Republic and the Bauhaus in Germany. Then the technique spread to Italy from the mid 1920s onwards, in full Deco style. On display are some examples of German ceramics alongside pieces from the main Italian manufacturers. With the airbrush a new modern decorative language was born, capable of translating the results of Futurist research into everyday objects. An exhibition that aims to describe the possibility of combining an innovative technique such as the airbrush with a traditional art craft.
