Bottega Veneta celebrates Italian craftsmanship

Bottega Veneta celebrates Italian craftsmanship

Andrea Tuzio · 5 months ago · Style

“Bottega for Bottegas”, this is the name of the new initiative of Bottega Veneta that intends to celebrate and raise awareness of Italian craftsmanship
A desire, that of the maison of Vicenza, which stems from the desire to give visibility to some Italian artisans that best represent the creativity combined with the craftsmanship of our country. 
Bottega Veneta will give visibility throughout the holiday season, through its global media power, to 12 stores scattered throughout Italy, sharing its spaces, first of all physical and then online, with the selected realities. 

An offline campaign includes the display of the products of the independent stores in the maison’s physical stores in Italy and an advertising launch with classic billboards throughout the city of Milan. There is also online advertising through newsletters and dedicated spaces on the Bottega Veneta website, where consumers are redirected to purchase products directly from the companies’ websites.
This initiative will not remain unique but will be repeated with other Italian artisan stores as protagonists.

These are the 12 stores that Bottega Veneta has chosen to support:

Bottega Krumiri Rossi 
Historical Italian brand from Casalmonferrato present on the market since 1878. It is said that one of the most famous cookies in Italy was born in the Piedmontese pastry shop of Domenico Rossi soon after the unification of Italy. 

Bottega Respighi Drums
Alessandro Respighi and Daniele Accardo manufacture in their workshop drums and drums that represent an all-Italian excellence. They are based in Pavia but their creations are played all over the world.

Bottega Pastificio Martelli
“A family of pasta makers in the heart of Tuscany”. Their historical headquarters is located in the ancient village of Lari in the province of Pisa, inside the Castle. A big yellow building is the Pastificio Famiglia Martelli, true artisans and traditional method for a 100% handmade semolina pasta.

Bottega Orsoni
Venetian mosaics since 1888. The creations of the last historical furnace in Venice, and the only one to still use live fire, still decorate the most famous monuments in the world. 

Bottega Cantina Bisson
Everything started when Pierluigi Lugano, master of art and established sommelier was only 6 years old. A schoolmate invited him to participate to the grape harvest in the vineyard of his parents. From that moment on, things were never the same and since 1978 Bisson wines represent an excellence to all intents and purposes.

Bottega Amatruda
Almost 750 years of handcrafting paper, more precisely Amalfi paper. The Amatruda family from Amalfi is a piece of Italian history. Their paper is not just paper but an individually produced cotton sheet with natural bangs on all sides and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council

Bottega Gin Ginepraio
A 100% organic and Made in Italy gin is the one produced by Enzo Brini and Fabio Mascaretti, who managed to transport ancient technologies into the modern production chain. Their creed is innovation combined with tradition in constant harmony with nature, and nature is the wonderful Tuscan territory.

Bottega Olio Vanini
For over 170 years, the Premiato Oleificio Vanini has been a family tradition. A long history of oil millers always in step with the times but respectful of tradition. Today this long tradition continues in their oil mill in Lenno, a small village with just over 1800 inhabitants in the municipality of Tremezzina in the province of Como. 

Bottega Saponificio Varesino
Sapofinificio Varesino was founded in 1945 in Brebbia, in the province of Varese, near the shores of Lake Maggiore. Thanks to the perfectioning of the artisan method together with new working techniques, this ancient soap factory produces soaps of the highest quality. 

Bottega Riso Pozzi
In the area of Landriano, in the province of Pavia, the Pozzi family processes this cereal with maniacal care. 

Bottega Gay-Odin
A piece of Neapolitan history. This company has been using the same production techniques since Isidoro Odin founded his first store in 1800. If you’ve never tasted it, do it!

Bottega Enza Fasano
Daughter of the well-known and esteemed Master of Art Nicola Fasano from Grottaglie, Enza was born practically among the ceramics inheriting a boundless love for ceramic work. A centuries-old tradition that today Enza Fasano brings to the contemporary world thanks to her unique and inimitable style.

Collater.al & Brillo. Together in the name of the love of illustration

Collater.al & Brillo. Together in the name of the love of illustration

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Art

We need new imagery, created in pencil, pen, black and white or colour, drawn on a sheet of paper or digitally. We also need a place where we can admire and immerse ourselves in these imaginaries. And what if this place were actually two? 
Collater.al and Brillo have joined forces to give even greater prominence to illustrators who are ready to take us into their world. 

Over the next few months, the Instagram profiles of @collater.al and @brillo_magazine will feature the work of these young talents, who promptly responded to the open call launched by the two magazines, and which you can always review here.

“Okja” in ten frames

“Okja” in ten frames

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Art

Okja” is a 2017 film directed by Bong Joon-ho. Although it did not rake in awards like the subsequent “Parasite“, “Okja” ranks among the South Korean director’s best works and features an ensemble cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The film tells the story of a young girl who for most of her life has raised a genetically modified “super pig,” building a bond of mutual affection with him. But their lives are set to change drastically as the industry that actually created the animal must take it back to begin the slaughtering process.
This is an exposing film against the mistreatment of animals within the meat industry that manages to deal with the topic by focusing on empathy and friendship. For this very reason in 2019 it was named one of the most influential films of the decade by the New York Times. 

In “Okja,” the state of mind of the protagonist and her animal are reflected in the colors of the sets and the choices related to the cinematography, curated by Darius Khondji (Seven, Midnight in Paris, Uncut Gems), which manage to completely capture the viewer.

The illusion of calm in the illustrations of Kento IIDA

The illusion of calm in the illustrations of Kento IIDA

Tommaso Berra · 1 week ago · Art

You know the sky on certain summer days, when you couldn’t find a cloud miles away and everything above our heads is a delicate blue, the color of the sweetest of spun sugars? Illustrator Kento IIDA finds in this atmosphere of calm the inspiration for his works, images of tranquil landscapes but leaving an atmosphere of suspicion, as if something unforeseen will happen soon, or as if something unforeseen has just happened, far from the eyes of possible witnesses.
In these vignettes there are always elements or signs that suggest a movement that breaks the calm, sometimes the movement has already happened or is in progress, as in the case of cars launching from bridges or space missiles lifting angular clouds to the sky like marble sculptures.

Kento IIDA (who is based in Tokyo) incorporates elements of Japanese tradition in his illustrations, thus traditional buildings and views of snow-capped peaks that hint at Mount Fuji appear in these ambiguous scenes, as well as baseball players, a national sport in Japan and probably the artist’s favorite.
There are not only clear skies in the views, however; poetry is also provided by clouds, often single and isolated, or by gloomy skies that sound like an omen, in an increasingly suspended and uncertain time.

Vickie Vainionpää’s code-generated works

Vickie Vainionpää’s code-generated works

Tommaso Berra · 6 days ago · Art

Artistic expression is now no longer bound only to manual gesture, and in some cases not even to the artist’s choice. Vickie Vainionpää‘s works in fact follow that artistic strand in which works are the result of codes, of an algorithm that creates unpredictable solutions by reworking basic information. The Montreal-based artist creates his works through a generative code, which traces a certain number of points placed in a Cartesian plane.
The result is that of twisted shapes like guts or extraterrestrial organic creatures, in which even the color and shades are dictated by the generative code.

The forms are then the basis for oil paintings on canvas, in which the digital forms acquire a presence and matter through the texture of the support, the shadows and the layering of color. Some of these canvases are recently on display in New York at The Hole NYC gallery for the artist’s solo exhibition entitled “Software.”
In Vickie Vainionpää’s works, the relationship between man and machine merges, the physical and virtual experience become interconnected to the point of blurring the genesis of everything. Who creates? Who is created by whom? A series of questions that help read and complicate the present.
