closed Diary of a designer

Curated by: Alessandro Valenti e Luca Parodi

The show

On Thursday 17 June the exhibition Diary of a designer will be inaugurated at the Palazzo Reale in Genoa. Sixty-nine days in the name of Vito Nesta, curated by Alessandro Valenti and Luca Parodi, the museum's first exhibition dedicated to a contemporary designer, in collaboration with the Department of Architecture and Design of the University of Genoa. The exhibition is part of the Genoa Design Week program scheduled from 17 to 21 June 2021.

The path winds through parallel paths that show the designer's work in two distinct exhibition modes that retrace, on the one hand, the experience during the days of the lockdown and, on the other, pay homage to the Genoese residence through contemporary objects and furnishings put into dialogue. with the historical pieces of the museum.

The first mode is installation. In the Galleria degli Specchi, a table - which is also a metaphor for the laid table - collects one hundred dishes created in the sixty-nine days of isolation spent at home, using ceramics like the pages of a diary.

The theme of the experience is the fulcrum of the narration: in the dishes on display, the sensations and moods of those lonely days take shape in a multitude of compositional motifs, the memories resurfaced by chance, the small daily changes observed by the window.
