The book aims to identify some extraordinary moments in the history of Italian artistic production, between the Middle Ages and the early modern age, in which artistic quality, the capacity for innovation and technical excellence were intertwined to produce consumer goods that, recognizable for their style and becoming fashionable, were exported to the rest of Europe. An exhibition that shows how Made in Italy was not born out of nothing in the 1970s, but had its roots in the artistic culture of Italy.

 

The book aims to identify some extraordinary moments in the history of Italian artistic production, between the Middle Ages and the early modern age, in which artistic quality, the capacity for innovation and technical excellence were intertwined to produce consumer goods that, recognizable for their style and becoming fashionable, were exported to the rest of Europe. From the fabrics of Lucca to those of Venice and Genoa, from the medieval ivories of the Embriachi to the inventions of Milanese goldsmiths of the 16th century, from the Lombard armors to the bronzes that spread the taste for antiques, up to the majolica of Faenza, later known in France as faïences: these are some of the moments of Italian artistic production in which objects of extraordinary technical and decorative quality were created. These creations, inspired by the relationship with the antique that characterized Italian art, drew on the most advanced inventions of the so-called major arts and constituted the most rapid means of diffusion in the world of iconographic and stylistic models elaborated in Italy. An exhibition that shows how Made in Italy was not born out of nothing in the 1970s, but had its roots in the artistic culture of Italy.

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
