Not to be missed Event 183 Sunday 9 10.30, Bibiena Theatre.
Lavorare tra silenzio e idee (Working among silence and ideas): Paolo Ulian with Beppe Finessi.
Saturday 8 September – Cocktail party at Agape 29A 7 p.m.
An event sponsored by Agape for the 2012 edition of Festivaletteratura, an international event which for the past 15 years has animated the city of Mantua through meetings with authors, readings, shows and concerts.
“In my opinion it is worth focusing on the communicative value of the project. When an object has something to say, to me it is already a source of satisfaction”.
Paolo Ulian is among the leaders of a new generation of Italian designers, whose projects win for their simplicity and humour. In conversation with Beppe Finessi (a longstanding friend of Agape and expert on the work of design guru Angelo Mangiarotti), Ulian illustrates one of the basic principles of his work: to give objects the difficult task of transmitting ideas and telling their own little tales.
The usual cocktail party will be held Saturday 8 on 7 pm at Agape 29A in Via XX Settembre 29A.
