Historical San Lorenzo’s Silver Collection

At Antonella Bensi Showroom, Via Santo Spirito, it’s possible to admire some pieces of the historical Collection of silver design objects made for San Lorenzo by the major designers of the 20th century: Franco Albini e Franca Helg, Antonio Piva, Maria Luisa Belgjoioso, Lella e Massimo Vignelli, Afra e Tobia Scarpa; they are still a constant reference point for the world of design culture.

San Lorenzo was founded in Milan in 1970 with the aim of renewing the expressive language of silverware following the principles of design. The idea of choosing one single material – moreover a precious metal – as a medium to express contemporary culture, as a sign of one’s time, was a remarkable innovation. Hard to understand at a time when silverware was still strongly influenced by the classical tradition.

Osé. Sul filo del non finito

Antonella Bensi is pleased to announce: Osé, sul filo del non finito. Solo exhibition of Romano Ragazzi curated by Claudio Cerritell.

The art works are part of the series "Osé, sul filo del non finito", corpus documented by a precious critical text by Claudio Cerritelli.

In the works exhibited on this occasion, Romano Ragazzi continues to investigate the finds of reality as mnemonic links emerging through the movements of his impulsive and allusive style, suspended between the expressible and the invisible, always in view of new visions. This dimension is characterized by details and figurative motifs that the sign translate as traces spread in the vertigo of the vacuum, a dilated threshold which receives the vibrations of the color, changing appearances of an imaginative flow inebriate by existential anxieties.
