During the Florence Art Week, three unique tapestries created by the textile manufacturer Bonotto will be presented to the public on Thursday, October 5th, in an event titled STEFANO CHIASSAI TAPESTRIES.
As part of the project “Drawing everyday. Diario visivo di Stefano Chiassai,” curated by Valentina Gensini, in collaboration with ADI, an entirely new exhibition space is being added: the Anna Banti Hall.
These three large-scale tapestries, woven from the drawings of the renowned fashion designer, represent three different approaches: solidarity with Iranian Women: They depict his solidarity with the struggles of Iranian women, represented by him in demonstrations for their rights, in a striking black and white contrast; the Ukrainian War: They delve into the tragedy of the war in Ukraine, where civilian populations have been enduring months of bombardments and are in constant need of help; personal Vitality: Lastly, Stefano Chiassai’s personal vitality shines through. He responds to the tragedies of history with an explosion of energy, inviting the public not to give up and to maintain a childlike perspective.
The tapestries will be presented to the public on October 5th at 5:30 PM, along with a talk by Stefano Chiassai, Perla Gianni (ADI), and Giovanni Bonotto (master weaver at the Bonotto textile factory), dedicated to the design and technique of tapestry. This will be followed by the opening of the new exhibition hall.
