Puntini: The Colorful 'Nebula'
02/09/2019 - A colorful nebula, reflected in the multiple semantic and symbolic values of the dots that compose it and give it a soul. Infinite souls, of various sizes and colors. All caressed by the feminine touch of Designer Anna Gili.
 
Those are the elements characterizing the Puntini collection that Ceramica Francesco De Maio presents at the next CERSAIE, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, in Bologna from September 23th to 27th September, 2019 (HALL 22 - STAND A20/A38).
 
Puntini is the last artistical project by Alessandro Mendini before his death last february.
 
'The tradition of Vietri ceramics has always been in my mind: the materials, the brushstrokes, the Mediterranean colors - sayed Alessandro Mendini - Now, finally, the Ceramica Francesco De Maio offers me the lucky opportunity to create a collection by myself. The opportunity is given to me by a wall that I had to prepare for the Red House museum in Anacapri. A wall made of polychrome tiles all the same, covered with endless small brushstrokes, a myriad of dots. This is how the 'pointillist' matrix of my collection for Francesco De Maio was born in the form of art. A system of Dots, now small, now large and isolated, now aligned vertically or diagonally, in order to retrace that complex system that for many years has generated the style of Vietri, with its rare harmonies.'
 
The decorations, in 20x20cm size, are obviously very colorful, 'in Mendini style' are a perfect opportunity for the meeting between the excellence and the ancient tradition of the Vietri ceramics and the creativity Made in Italy by Alessandro Mendini, one of the most appreciated contemporary designers.
 
So, in the new-born Collection Puntini by Alessandro Mendini, there is the poetics of the great Italian artist gives a further opening to contemporary languages in the vein of the Vietri tradition in enhancing, at the same time, modern spaces and architecture. 20x20cm ceramic tiles invaded by tiny brushstrokes in the shape of dots decorated by hand and inspired by the pointillism.
