Our visit to Vicenza fair ABILMENTE 2015 continues exploring design and home decor with Atelier “Vesti la tua sedia” (t. Dress Up Your Chair) where we met Flavia Turel of the cultural and artistic association “Noi… dell’Arte” of Gorizia (Italy), who told us how they got to ABILMENTE and what they do since 2010.
The Association “Noi… dell’Arte” was created by multiple contributions: surely by the sensitivity and experience of the founding members, who are both students and teachers of the Institute of Art, as well as professionals. Another important support was given by the Provincial Museums of Gorizia, which suggested the creation of small objects collections made to promote and enhance the artistic heritage of the territory.
Therefore the association carries on its own activities at the Provincial Museums of Gorizia, working on the historical craftsmanship heritage of the town, focusing on silk weaving. They held many workshops and courses about dyeing, weaving, felt and much more, both for adults and children, with a keen eye to recycled materials. The strong link with the Provincial Museums of Gorizia and “Noi… dell’Arte” also lives in the beautiful gadgets of the museum exhibitions that are sold directly in the museum shop, designed and created by the association.
At ABILMENTE, some of the artworks part of the exhibition “Vesti la tua sedia” are by Antonella Palomba, Antonella Pizzolongo, Flavia Turel and Rossanna Colloricchio.
