Milano Makers with the exhibition HANDS AND TERRACOTTA curated by Maria Christina Hamel in 2013 and presented at Argillà Italia in 2014 has focused the attention on the renewed relationship between design and ceramics and therefore then between designers and artisans.
From this union the exhibition CERAMICS, FOOD AND DESIGN was born, consisting of 20 works , today an integral part of the permanent collection of the MIC in Faenza. A further stage of evolution is represented by the collection TOGETHER, THE ITEMS FOR TWO realized with the Municipality of Albissola and the corporate network “Made in Albisola”.
All this was made possible by the fruitful cooperation that has been established between Milano Makers and the Municipalities of Milan, Faenza and Albissola.
The collection TOGETHER, THE ITEMS FOR TWO , exhibition presented in the Fabbrica del Vapore in April as part of the exhibition SHARING DESIGN MAKING MAKERS, will be repeated from the 1st to 4th of September at ARGILLA’ in the foyer of the Teatro Masini in Faenza.
