Habitat: the set of environmental conditions in which an animal or a plant lives. For our new catalogue we have decided to explore the habitats in which art objects find their homes. We believe that the curation of ancient sculptures and works of art within domestic interiors plays a vital role in activating the object and its space, sparking a fascinating dialogue between the two. The relationship between art and space is one of intrinsic reciprocity. As Germano Celant wrote: “Art creates a space, to the same extent that the environment creates art”. Art has the power to animate a space, while a space endows art with new meaning. This relationship has many expressions: the curation of objects within a given context can create a sense of harmony but can also draw out striking contrasts and juxtapositions. A conversation is fostered - the objects sing to their surroundings, which in turn echo back to the artworks. In the last year we have been compelled to consider our habitats more than ever before, to sit with our spaces and to reexamine them. The perfect habitat brings a sense of equilibrium, and beautiful objects at home have been demonstrated to contribute greatly to our well-being. Artworks are not only to be viewed in glass cases and from a great distance, but are instead to be lived with, to be admired and enjoyed - to be a source of real pleasure. Each object that we offer in this catalogue has captivating historical and aesthetic qualities: whether it is the precious material, the exquisite craftsmanship, the illustrious provenance, or the rarity. We have placed them in a variety of elegant domestic settings which help these wonderful works to come alive. We hope you find inspiration in our new collection. Giulia and Giovanni
