It gives me great pleasure to welcome ARTOUR-O il MUST to London with this significant step on the journey linking art, territory and business. One of the many aims of ARTOUR-O is to emphasise the existence of an enlightened spirit of entrepreneurship, manifesting itself in an approach to commissioning work which is more lively than ever. So let’s take a look at the world of Il MUST in the premises of both Ventique and the Italian Cultural Institute, give a warm welcome to ARTOUR-O and its creator Tiziana Leopizzi, and get to know their vision of the Italian way of life. Carlo Presenti

Direttore Istituto Italiano di Cultura a Londra


On a cool evening in March 2009, I walked past the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence with its splendid Tuscan Romanesque façade, entered the Hotel Minerva and made my first acquaintance with ARTOUR-O. Exhibition, art fair or what? I wasn’t sure but it didn’t matter. Here was a vibrant celebration of contemporary art and design in a city whose lifeblood is the achievement of artistic endeavour. Wandering through the many hotel rooms with work displayed on walls, chairs, tables and beds, I was struck by the thought that all the works of art in that great city had been contemporary in their time, some produced as part of a grand design and others for private pleasure and enjoyment. It was clear that the Florentine tradition of recognising and valuing creative expression was still very much alive. So I am delighted that ARTOUR-O is bringing its energy and vision to London, giving us an opportunity to experience the challenge and excitement of contemporary visual culture. The setting is neither gallery nor museum, allowing the work to be seen in a context more in tune with our everyday lives. I hope you will enjoy it. Vanessa Hall-Smith MBE

Director, British Institute of Florence 2004 -2011



Most illustrious Lord, Having now sufficiently considered the specimens of all those who proclaim themselves skilled contrivers of instruments of war, and that the invention and operation of the said instruments are nothing different to those in common use: I shall endeavour, without prejudice to any one else, to explain myself to your Excellency showing your Lordship my secrets, and then offering them to your best pleasure and approbation to work with effect at opportune moments as well as all those things which, in part, shall be briefly noted below. 1) I have extremely light and strong bridges, adapted to be most easily carried, and with them you may pursue, and at any time flee from the enemy; and others, secure and indestructible by fire and battle, easy and convenient to lift and place. Also methods of burning and destroying those of the enemy. 2) I know how, when a place is besieged, to take the water out of the trenches, and make endless variety of bridges, and covered ways and ladders, and other machines pertaining to such expeditions. 3) Idem. If, by reason of the height of the banks, or the strength of the place and its position, it is impossible, when besieging a place, to avail oneself of the plan of bombardment, I have methods for destroying every rock or other fortress, even if it were founded on a rock, etc. 4) Idem I have kinds of mortars; most convenient and easy to carry; and with these can fling small stones almost resembling a storm; and with the smoke of these causing great terror to the enemy, to his great detriment and confusion. 9) And when the fight should be at sea I have many kinds of machines most efficient for offence and defence; and vessels which will resist the attack of the largest guns and powder and fumes. 5) Idem. I have means by secret and tortuous mines and ways, made without noise to reach a designated [spot], even if it were needed to pass under a trench or a river. 6) Idem. I will make covered chariots, safe and unattackable which, entering among the enemy with their artillery, there is no body of men so great but they would break them. And behind these, infantry could follow quite unhurt and without any hindrance. 7) Idem. In case of need I will make big guns, mortars and light ordinance of fine and useful forms, out of the common type. 8) Where the operation of bombardment should fail, I would contrive catapults, mangonels, trabocchi and other machines of marvellous efficacy and not in common use. And in short, according to the variety of cases, I can contrive various and endless means of offence and defence. 10) In time of peace I believe I can give perfect satisfaction and to the equal of any other in architecture and the composition of buildings public and private; and in guiding water from one place to another. Idem: I can carry out sculpture in marble, bronze or clay, and also in painting whatever may be done, and as well as any other, be he whom he may. Again, the bronze horse may be taken in hand, which is to be to the immortal glory and eternal honour of the prince your father of happy memory, and of the illustrious house of Sforza. And if any one of the above-named things seem to any one to be impossible or not feasible, I am most ready to make the experiment in your park, or in whatever place may please your Excellency-to whom I commend myself with the utmost humility.


ARTOUR-O was born in 2005 with the aim of creating a dialogue between “Art and the Private Commissioner”. A successful partnership capable of leaving a clear message about the art of the moment thanks to both Italian artists and those from all over the world who, today as before, have chosen Italy as their home. As a result of globalisation, this dialogue can be understood more and more easily all over the world using an artistic language which is now familiar to all. ARTOUR-O in London demonstrates once again how art is related to design and private commissions, something that has been embedded in Italian culture for centuries. Beauty lives at the Temporary Museum, the result of a creativity that is the breeding ground for art, design and enlightened entrepreneurship. Welcome to the Ventique Showroom, where the “Must” has found its home - in Chelsea with its magnificent Design Centre and in a metropolis which is at the cutting edge of style. I would like to thank all those who have believed in this project, partners, friends and supporters, without whom we would not have been in a position to take the journey of making art improve the quality of life and the economy and our belief that “the market would not exist without culture”.* My sincere thanks for the welcome which we have been given and the invitation to “dive” into this concert of art and design in which the special project “Anfibio forever” is at its beginning but will be continued on our journey. Once again a warm welcome to all our visitors and we look forward to seeing you again at the ninth edition of ARTOUR-O in Florence on 8 March 2013. * Introduction of the Project MISA Museo Internazionale in progress per le Aziende, International Museum in Progress for the Companies - First edition, 2009

MISA is an in progress sculpture museum dedicated to enterprises. It aims to be a reference for international contemporary artists who work on Italian territory within selected companies. The focus is to grow up lifestyle and culture inside these working places such as suggestive lanscape, urban, entrepreneural or interior contexts. MISA is a network which underlines the important tradition of purchasing in our country and which even today testifies the art of our time. There is a big social valency in MISA, thanks to the use of art in living locations such as industrial or turistic establishments. MISA and ARTOUR-O il MUST MISA is a daugther project of ARTOUR-O the MUST (Temporary MUSeum). The MISA d’Argento award integrates ARTOUR-O d’Argento, given to participants who create new ‘points of art’, in this way allowing to write a page of our historical moment in the big book of art history. IPOTESI DINAMICA is an exhibition of maquettes going on tour with MISA. The artists taking part in this project: Stefano Agosta, Sabato Angiero, Claudia Ballesio, Brunivo Buttarelli, Nado Canuti, Tommaso Cascella, Lucilla Catania, Cate Nuto, Diego Collareda, Alessandro d’Ercole, Corrado de Ceglia, Franco de Courten, Enzo Esposito, Nicola Evangelisti, Giorgio Faletti, Paolo Fiorellini, Alba Folcio, Giorgio Gatto, Anna Girolomini, Giua, Giovanni Grigolini, Alessandra Imperati, Adriano Leverone, Carlo Lorenzetti, Lorenzo Malfatti, Alfred Milot Mirashi, Clelia Mori, Szymon Oltarzewski, Andrè Parodi Monti, Andrea Piotto, Giampiero Poggiali Berlinghieri, Potsy, Alfredo Rapetti Mogol, Marco Nereo Rotelli, Renza Sciutto, Stefano Soddu, Daniele Statera, Alberto Timossi, Paolo Torri, Silvano Zanchi.

Ambasciata d’Albania p.12 Alfred Milot Mirashi Atelier - Gugliermetto Experience TO p.14 As a ten year old child Diego Gugliermetto meets inside Gufram family firm, Pietro Gilardi and Ugo Nespolo, who were already active experimenters of creative art languages. He remained struck by Pop Art and by what followed with the formal creations of architects and artists (designers didn’t exist as such at the time) who created unusual forms and design object with new materials which were light and enjoyable to carve, paint or dress with many coloured fabrics: let’s think of pieces such as Cactus, Mouth, Pratone, Cut-off, Stones, Torneraj, Capitello… Gugliermetto still considers Pietro Gilardi his great Maestro. Diego begins to “to play” with polyurethane frequenting at the same time the Faculty of Architecture with professors Giorgio De Ferrari and Gino Bistagnino. He performs and produces scenography and costumes for well known entertainment events in Turin and conveys his craftsmanship to furniture objects, exchanging know-how with important names of interior design in Italy: Saporiti, Missoni, Moroso. At the end of the Nineties he starts working directly on “Multiples” for Gufram, the firm which he will then pass on to Poltrona Frau in 2004, after the success of the show “The Rock Furniture” at the Castle of Rivoli in Turin. For five years he devotes

himself o interior design, to light design and to research. He later returns to polyurethane with the approach of an art designer and edits the actual thread conductor of his very popular one-man show “ A History of True Fabulous Folly “. Since 2009 he produces again “Multiples” for Gufram on behalf of Poltrona FrauCassina while also not abandoning his successful creative editions. He’s an ADI Member and has participated to Artissima 15 taking also part with his art-design objects at the celebrations for Turin World Design Capital.

Berengo Studio VE p.16 Juan Ripollés Berengo Studio represents one of the more innovative efforts to encourage the use of glass as an expression of contemporary artistic requirements. During the 1980s and 1990s, the studio’s founder, Adriano Berengo, invited the early

artists to use glass in their artistic experiments. As a result of  their collaborations with master glass-makers, many artists began to translate their - generally pictorial - works into glass sculptures. Berengo Studio’s project is striving to free glass from its perception as simply a functional material and Murano glass’s prevalently decorative tradition and to make glass a vibrant medium for use in contemporary art. For almost twenty years, more than 140 international artists have come to the Berengo furnace to create glass sculptures and have contributed to making this ambitious project real. With galleries in Venice, Murano and Tokyo, Berengo Studio today boasts of its works being found in numerous public and private collections throughout the world.   Recently, an old, early 20thcentury glass furnace on Murano has regained importance after many years of disuse; the structure has been transformed into an exhibition space to display all the prototypes carried out by Berengo Studio over the years as well as glass works created in other parts of the world. Last year the furnace, called Berengo Centre for Contemporary Art in Glass, hosted an exhibition conceived and organized by Adriano Berengo, GLASSTRESS 2011, collateral event at the 54 Venice’ Biennale. Comune di Albissola SV p.18 Artisti: Silvia Celeste Calcagno The Municipality of Albissola Marina and AdAC University of Genoa are collaborating to realize MuDAC: the Diffuse

That heritage is today spread all over the territory: between the Bruciati hill (House Museum Asger Jorn) and the Artists Promenade (1963).

Progetto Speciale ANFIBIO Tommaso Cascella - Pablo Echaurren - Alba FolcioGiorgio Gatto - Giua Andrea Piotto - Giampiero Poggiali Berlinghieri Founded in the mid six- ties, Giovannetti hit imme- diately the international attention with innovative and researched products, perfectly matching the experimental climate of those years, when new forms were being created and new ways were sought to satisfy the grow- ing necessity of relaxing, meeting and conversing. This is the philosophy which gave birth to a series of projects – numerous those designed by Superstudio of Florence – which today may be found in the most precious art galleries and achieve astonishing figures at international auctions at Christie’s or Sotheby’s. First among all Anfibio (1970), a product which, born as a convertible sofa, fulfilling both functions of sofa and bed in a simple and poetic way; adds the sensuality and charisma of those who continue to interpret the people’s desires, today like yesterday. Anfibio enabled the commercial growth of the company (more than 31,000 pieces produced); moreover the cultural one, raising it to the Olympus of Art and Design by the assignment of a series of awards which made it be- ing represented in the col- lections of the major muse- ums of contemporary art in the world. Marchesato degli Aleramici SI p.36 Brunivo Buttarelli

Stefano Soddu The farm Marchesato degli Aleramici was born in 1986 near Siena, in the munici- pality of Montalcino, where the farm Il Galampio is. Located in Pian delle Vi- gne, the old farmhouse rises on the side of a gen- tle slope that runs from the state-owned forest to the river Ombrone. The vineyards and the olive tree groves, facing the east and the west, grow mainly around the farmhouse, on a surface of about 40 acres out of the 120 acres of the property. The Senese area, of which Montalcino is part, is one of the world’s oldest areas planted with vines. In this context are produced wines like the Brunello di Montalcino, the Rosso di Montalcino and in ancient times, before those renown wines were produced, in the farmhouse Il Galampio a peculiar red wine was produced, made from the same vines as the Brunello. Since 2008 the farmhouse Il Galampio is part of the natural reserve Il Bogatto. Matteo Bianchi Studio UK p.38 Matteo Bianchi Studio combines playful, unique and refined Interior design and product design. Working on both commercial and residential projects in London and internationally, Matteo Bianchi Studio aims to fill the niche between solo interior designers and multinational design consultancies. Matteo Bianchi’s style is playful yet intelligent, unique yet refined. The studio have recently completed projects in Kensington; a three bedroom pied-aterre, Islington; a luxury, inde81

pendent estate agency and an independent Deli in Barbican. A natural progression from interior design, Matteo Bianchi Studio designed a range of elegant yet playful and functional products the debut of which being the Muffin Pouffe. Handmade with the finest materials, the Muffin Pouffe is a luxurious seat with hidden storage from Italian designer Matteo Bianchi. The Muffin Pouffe’s ‘ingredients’ are selected by the customer from a range of beautifully handcrafted, solid wooden bases, Italian prime cut leathers and buttons. Following on from the design of the Muffin Pouffe Matteo Bianchi Studio have designed a collection of Playful Elegant pieces combining functionality with a beautiful aesthetic that he feels is lacking from the market for both commercial and residential spaces. ‘Bella’ is an elegant occasional seat made with fine Italian leather, with a storage drawer beneath, and ‘Bruno’ is a coffee table with a hidden storage that doubles up as a laptop tray. Museo e Biblioteca Internazionale della Musica di Bologna e Villa La Vedetta p.40 Nicola Evangelisti Museo Luzzati GE p.42 Daniele Bisagni Marina Profumo Giampiero Poggiali Berlinghieri Opened in 2001, the museum dedicated to Emanuele Luzzati is located in the Porto Antico Area (old harbour).

Paraxo Centro culturale SV p.44 Alba Folcio - Fukushi Ito Renza Sciutto Born in 1988 from an idea of Renza Sciutto, with the organization of the multimedia review “Ricostruzione-reconstruction” in the ancient medieval village of Andora.

Plastic Food Project PG p.46 Valeria Catania - Potsy “Plastic food”. this is the last of a series of installations that be-

gins in 2000, and all characterized from the us- ing of plastic materials. Pot- sy is convinced that people live an unpaid love with the same plastic that has become marvellous and ir- replaceable. This artwork is nothing more than an invi- tation to make a walk trou- ought a landscape that is futuristic and present at the same time. We think that it’s far away by our marvellous Umbrian hills, but it’s not real so distant. This artwork come from a very easy consideration, we must reduce our production of rubbish. We cant’ wait una- ware anymore, the future is in front of our eyes and we aren’t be able to see it because our lives are dis- tracted from many useless things. The big problem is that in future, our children will not able to enjoy a landscape and a style of life that are so normal for us but not so obvious in fu- ture. We can walk quietly walk in a filed smelling the perfume of the fresh green, we can feel the delight- full fragrance of the hay bales, so we can recover our cantact with the nature everyday. This is the inher- itance that we must live to the future generations. “Plastic Food” represents what we will live, what we expect and that unfortu- nately is past and present at the same time in other regions. We survive in a so- ciety that cannibalizes cer- tainties and that is trying in anyway to be a substitute against the natural evolu- tion of simple living things. Our society has transformed plant- eater into carnivores, following a perverse profit logic, the same that at

the and will rebound on us. Sarah Angelica Pardo AR p.48 Antonio Massarutto Antonio Massarutto is an eclectic artist currently working as a professional designer in Italy and China. A sculptor, painter, pho- tographer, graphic artist, and even an actor in his spare time, he moves with extreme ease between the various artistic disciplines. From childhood on, lines and forms have played an essential role in Antonio’s universe and determined his course of studies. He was educated at the Art In- stitute of Cordenons, his city of origin, and the Academy of Applied Arts, Milan. His first work experiences in his native region of Friuli led him to an immediate collaboration as a designer for major companies such as BMW and ELECTROLUX. Parallel to this, Antonio con- tinues to pursue his creative vein, which leads him to ex- periment with other forms of expression. He works in fashion, producing T-shirt collections, as a consultant to interior designers. Antonio Massarutto soon realized that his knowledge of the plastic arts could be put to the service of jewel- lery design, and he began to work as a designer for major Italian goldsmith companies. Since 2005 he has been collaborating with the Hong Kong com- pany, KTL Jewellery Manu- facturer Ltd., first creating the Italian brand Rosso De- sign, followed in 2008 by his range Rosso Academy, a top line of jewellery inspired by today’s trends and inno- vative design.

Teatro della Tosse GE p.50 Studio d’Arte Raffaella Benetti RO Raffaella Benetti was born in Canaro Italy, in 1961. She studied philosophy and later at the Venice Euro- pean Centre for the Trades and Professions of the Con- servation of Architectural Heritage. 2005 to 2007 she attended a course of Archi- tecture and Arts for Liturgy at the Pontifical University S. Anselmo in Rome. Here started a path of research on the Icon and Byzantine Art. In 2012 the course for curators and art events at the Slovenian Public Exhibi- tion Center in Venice. Initially became interested in painting focusing her ar- tistic research on the rela- tion color-light. By the end of the nineties she devoted himself to sculpture and created works with the use of materials such as gold, marble, bronze. Influenced by writers such as Mircea Eliade, Pavel Florenskij, Elemire Zolla, G. Bachelard, she addresses a special attention to the symbol, symbol that the artist uses in his plastic language which thus acquires a precise character and originality. Raffaella has made both individual and group exhi- bitions. Her work appears both in private and public collections. p.52 Università di Parma Pinuccio Sciola

Franco de Courten Palazzo Cigola Martinoni BS p.63 In the little village of Cigole, a great multi-function centre has been born as the result of an ambitious restoration project of Cigola Martinoni Palace to develop and promote cultural and entrepreneurial activities in the pianura bresciana territory. The project, headed by Pianura Bresciana Foundation, has been carried on by Pianura Bresciana Srl through a project financing operation and it has been supported by a public-private partnership which guarantees financial and economical sustainability. Inside the palace, in the extraordinary atmosphere of ancient times and in the rooms full of frescos, the centre offers the opportunity to reserve rooms for events organised by public or private entities. In the centre there is the “Raìs, Museum for the valorisation of rural culture and ancient games”, a multimedia museum which displays a trip through the territory of pianura bresciana, traditions, handicrafts, typical food, and ancient and traditional games which have always played an important role in the lives of the citizens. In summary, Cigola Martinoni Palace is a centre for the promotion, valorisation and development of the pianura bresciana territory and in all of its activities.
