“Il sogno di Antonio: un viaggio tra arte e tessuto” is an exhibition dedicated to entrepreneur and patron Antonio Ratti and curated by Lorenzo Benedetti, Annie Ratti e Maddalena Terragni
This is the third exhibition dedicated to Antonio Ratti – after those at Palazzo Te in Mantua in 2017, and at the Baths of Diocletian in Rome in 2018. A journey between art and fabric further explores the vision and history of the entrepreneur, expanding the project and engaging in a direct dialogue with the places where he lived and worked throughout his life and where he developed the thought that has guided him for years, that experience and knowledge, art and experimentation are fundamental tools for understanding one’s own time and generating new ideas. Many of the works on display have been created specifically for the exhibition, contributing to the creation of a cohesive visual relationship between the artistic research, the antique fabrics, Antonio Ratti’s history and the exhibition’s interior and exterior spaces.
