Description

Learn about the contemporary historic architecture of Negozio Olivetti during this guided tour that will help you discover the history of the space and its main protagonists: Adriano Olivetti and Carlo Scarpa. Walk under the colonnades of the Procuratie Vecchie where you will encounter a small corner premise that was identified as the ideal building to transmit Adriano Olivetti's company's cultural values in a modern and innovative context that respects the historic surroundings. Marvel at the challenging commission that was given to the Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, who completely overhauled the original unit with a design based on a brilliant, cutting-edge re-organization of the spaces to re-shape the volumes while making the most of the light and engaging in a dialogue with the decorative elements. Until the 1st September 2024, visitors of FAI Negozio Olivetti can see inside of the space as well the new temporary exhibition: “Tony Cragg. Le forme del vetro” al Negozio Olivetti, curated by Cristina Beltrami and Jean Blanchaert. The exhibition is included in the entry ticket to FAI Negozio Olivetti. With the presence of the exhibition, the content and set up of the historical interior includes a slight modifications for the exhibition.
