La Bella Italia, Venaria Reale, 2011
Italy celebrates its 150 years history with several festivities, exhibitions throughout the country. One of the exhibitions, “La bella Italia, art and identity of Italian capital cities”, shows the great masters of Italian art from antiquity to the Unification.
In the imposing setting of the Juvarra Stables at the Reggia di Venaria, more than 350 masterpieces from well-known Italian artists make up a journey that spans from Antiquity to the dawn of 1861 through the “cultural capitals” of Italy before Unification: Turin, Florence, Roma, Milan, Venice, Genoa, Bologna, Parma, Modena, Naples and Palermo. The dazzling setting of the Orangery (Citroniera) and the Great Stables (Scuderie) of Filippo Juvarra and the artistic value made this project very challenging for NUSSLI. The exhibition area had a dimension of 4.000 square meters and was decorated with fiberglass with wood optics, synthetic grass and leaves painted in seasonal colors. 700 square meter floor was covered as walkable mirror. Despite the great organizational challenge with all companies on site NUSSLI was able to execute this project in just 3 months.
