Small is Beautiful: Art in Miniature, the first international exhibition entirely dedicated to miniature art, which collects the works of 19 international artists and presents them to the general public. The exhibition offers exclusive access to the magical and sometimes unusual worlds of some of the greatest artists of the movement, offering us a new perspective on today's world.


The exhibition is curated by its creator, Serge Victoria. Small is Beautiful represents an incredible journey through worlds reduced to the limits of the possible, strengthened by an obsessive attention to detail and rich in poetry. The only real limit, in a small way, is the immense imagination of the authors of the works. The exhibition, which has established itself internationally, represents a unique example of its kind and aims to make miniature art known to the general public, but also to stimulate the birth of a community ready to share all dimensions of art. Visitors will be able to discover some of the smallest artworks in the world, measuring just a few millimeters or less, which require the use of powerful magnifying glasses to be well observed and appreciated.


Visiting Small is Beautiful means embarking on a journey beyond reality, a bit as if we humans moved in a universe created the size of an ant and where the unit of measurement is truly, at most, the tip of a finger . Regarding the title of the exhibition, the curator Serge Victoria comments on its origin: "The expression Small is Beautiful was originally proposed by Leopold Kohr and used in the economics book "Small is Beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered" by Ernst Friedrich Schumacher (a student of Kohr, ed.) in 1973. to promote a return to a society proportionate to the size of the human being, in the face of the gigantism that has become the norm. Kohr was therefore a precursor of downsizing in multiple fields: economics, ecology, governance, and so on.”
