An unmissable screening of Gianluigi Calderone’s documentary dedicated to the Santillana-Venini family.
The documentary tells the story of the events that followed the ousting of the Santillana-Venini family from the Venini company in 1986 and the attempt by its members to recreate a new company, a new glass brand: Eos. The death of the head of the family, Ludovico Diaz de Santillana, the decline of the Murano fortune and the persistent hostility of those who had ousted the family from Venini led to the failure of these attempts in 1993.
However, the seven years of activity produced a flourish of fine works by the many artists and designers who collaborated with them: Lino Tagliapietra, Richard Meitner, Toots Zynsky, Serge Mansau, Arlon Bayliss, Massimo Morozzi, and above all Ludovico, Laura and Alessandro de Santillana.

After opening the great exhibition ANTROPOCENE at the Civic Gallery of Trento, Bertozzi & Casoni's works are exhibited until July 30 at Caterina Tognon gallery, Venice, with istantanee.
Between compositional surrealism and formal hyperrealism, the artistic duo, in working on a complex material such as polychrome ceramic, has been investigating the waste of contemporary society for years, in a staging in which sinks into decay alternate with the discovery of sudden, delicate beauties.

In 1980 Giampaolo Bertozzi and Stefano Dal Monte Casoni founded Bertozzi & Casoni. The company is dedicated to ceramic sculpture, the expressive medium they chose as their area of activity.
The artists experimented with technique and form, creating pieces poised between irony and social investigation, critique of consumerism and reflection on the art system. Bertozzi & Casoni reproduce reality by focusing on discarded or minor elements, provoking shifts in meaning and blurring sign and appearance. In the exhibition their works are juxtaposed with those of great artists from the Mart's collections, including Lucio Fontana, Fausto Melotti and Giorgio Morandi, to underline the clear references to the world of contemporary art and design in the work of the two sculptors, which is also very much informed by the art of the past.
On February 22, 2022, the ACC - American Craft Council, a national nonprofit dedicated to advancing American craft, announced the winners of four major awards, marking more than 50 years of awards honoring individuals and organizations for exceptional artistic, scholarly, and philanthropic contributions to the craft field.
