Una Stagione del Liberty a Riccione
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Since the late nineteenth century the villas vintage characterize the urban fabric of Riccione, tracing reflection of its history. The old fishing village, which has its hub in that stretch of the Via Flaminia Course renamed Fratelli Cervi, expands quickly up the dunes, lapped by the sea. So much so that in 1905 two hundred villas are surveyed. A heritage building that is the driving force in the wealthiest families in the Centre-North, attracted by the pleasantness of the pleasant seaside resort, its salubrious climate and the atmosphere lively, cheerful and hospitable. A process that, excluding the brackets of the sad events of the war continues for decades, recording a further development in the twenties and thirties. Period in which the Duce and his family spend their holidays in Riccione. "Ogni architettura è grande dopo il tramonto: forse l’architettura è veramente un’arte notturna, come quella dei fuochi artificiali." Gilbert Keith Chesterton Sin dalla fine dell’Ottocento i villini d’epoca caratterizzano il tessuto urbano di Riccione, tracciandone di riflesso la sua storia. Il vecchio borgo marinaro, che ha il suo fulcro in quel tratto della Flaminia rinominato Corso Fratelli Cervi, si espande in fretta sino alle dune, lambite dal mare. Tant’è che nel 1905 vengono censite duecento ville. Un patrimonio edilizio che trova la forza di propulsione nelle facoltose famiglie del Centro-Nord, attratte dalla gradevolezza della ridente località balneare, dal suo clima salubre e dalla sua atmosfera vivace, allegra e ospitale. Un processo che, escluse le parentesi dei tristi eventi bellici, prosegue nei decenni, registrando un ulteriore sviluppo negli anni Venti e Trenta. Periodo in cui il Duce con la sua famiglia trascorre le vacanze a Riccione. Avere una residenza estiva a pochi passi da quella di Donna Rachele Guidi e di Benito Mussolini, diventa appannaggio di gerarchi, imprenditori e professionisti. Riccione si arricchisce così di un considerevole patrimonio urbanistico, in buona parte cancellato nel tempo da quel processo d’innovazione che tuttora lo mette a repentaglio. Sono centinaia i villini demoliti nel dopoguerra per lasciare spazio a pensioni e alberghi che hanno segnato il boom del turismo popolare. In questo contesto s’inserisce la storia di Villa Antolini sulla quale il giovane autore Andrea Speziali ha svolto una certosina e meticolosa ricerca, che guida il lettore negli ambienti di quel "monumento" in stile Liberty, a Riccione davvero raro. Tra dettagli architettonici, interni ed esterni, attraverso una serie di rare immagini e una puntuale descrizione, turisti e residenti potranno così visitare idealmente le stanze di quel simbolo della Bella époque riccionese che resiste all’evoluzione urbanistica della città. Al nostro autore va dato merito di questo studio e soprattutto di aver scoperto che a firmare il progetto del fabbricato, autentico "gioiellino" incastonato tra il boulevard del Lungomare della Repubblica e Viale Milano, è stato Mario Mirko Vucetich, illustre architetto, nonché scrittore, scenografo e scultore di origine dalmata che operò soprattutto tra Friuli, Veneto, Emilia - Romagna e Lazio. Una scoperta di notevole rilevanza, destinata a traghettare il nome di Riccione oltre i confini nazionali. Questa pubblicazione, attraverso la parte monografica, dedicata al futurista che ebbe contatti con Carlo Emilio Gadda, diventa così occasione anche per conoscere e rivalutare il poliedrico artista, nel tempo abbandonato. (Tratto dalla Presentazione del libro di Nives Concolino) Andrea Speziali, nato il 28/09/1988 a Rimini e residente a Riccione, nella zona denominata Abissinia, a pochi passi da villa Antolini. Diplomato presso l’Istituto Statale d’Arte Federico Fellini, attualmente frequenta l’Accademia di Belle Arti a Rimini. Coltiva con passione l’interesse per l’arte e si dedica alla pittura, scultura e alla grafica, traendo spesso ispirazione dalla produzione di Mirko Vucetich, l’ecclettico architetto di Villa Antolini e dall’Art Nouveau, offrendone originali interpretazioni.

Trieste liberty. Costruire e abitare l’alba del novecento
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Meeting in Trieste for a great show on Liberty, just opened a location in strict style: the Hall of Enchantment of the former Fish Market, delicious sea palace dated 1911, which housed the fish market today and is a venue for exhibitions and events. Here were collected over 500 drawings, photographs, documents, publications, tables, furnishings, three rooms have been recreated liberty, with the historic stained glass windows at the Excelsior Palace Hotel, and have been counted more than 150 historic houses . All to tell "how you built and how you lived in Trieste in the early '900 ', when the city was the port (ex) of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Vienna almost a small sea. And just arrived from Vienna more suggestions for what might be termed the "liberty of Trieste": the proto-rationalism of Otto Wagner and the Secession Olbrich Hoffman, the Jugendstil, which are mixed with the taste of floral Italian. Result, elegant buildings from the doorways decorated and balconies of wrought iron, that can be seen not only in the historical center, but also in residential neighborhoods where the rich merchant class chooses to settle down, to create a fascinating and eclectic mix that is a bit 'the figure of the city, from all points of view.
PARIS
Trésors de Sable et de Feu, Verre et Cristal aux Arts Décoratifs, XIVe-XXIe siècle
Dates:09/04/2015-15/11/2015

L’exposition est la première grande rétrospective dédiée à une histoire du verre depuis « L’Art du Verre » organisée aux Arts Décoratifs en 1951. Le caractère international de ce projet va de pair avec une attention particulière accordée aux verriers français, en offrant certains regards croisés sur les productions anciennes et contemporaines. Les objets, ornementaux ou utilitaires, et les œuvres d’art sont inscrits dans une trame chronologique qui rythme le parcours du visiteur sur les deux étages. Les pièces exposées illustrent les goûts des collectionneurs qui ont activement enrichi le fonds de l’institution, ainsi que les acquisitions importantes de verres faites depuis le XIXe siècle.

Des originaux arabo-musulmans, comme les verres émaillés mamelouks sont confrontés aux créations de Philippe J. Brocard à Paris ou de la firme Lobmeyr à Vienne et côtoient des verres chinois de la dynastie Qing qui fascinèrent émile Gallé. Le visiteur découvre l’histoire du verre européen du XVIe au XVIIIe grâce aux dons et legs de collectionneurs passionnés comme Patrice Salin, Madeleine Bougenaux, François Carnot et Madame Fernand Bernard. La création de manufactures modernes au début du XIXe siècle, participe à l’émergence d’une véritable verrerie et cristallerie de luxe en France, comme celle de Baccarat. Les « cristaux opales » ou « opalines », sont l’originalité la plus grande de cette production française et un point fort de la collection.

Les Arts Décoratifs contribuent à l’éclosion et à la diffusion d’un art nouveau et, jusqu’en 1914, rassemblent un splendide ensemble d’œuvres, dont celles d’Emile Gallé, de René Lalique et de François-Eugène Rousseau. 
Cette politique active d’enrichissements est cependant très ralentie après la Première Guerre Mondiale mais des acquisitions spectaculaires viennent enrichir le musée, comme le legs de Monsieur et Madame Barthou, grands amateurs des verriers Maurice Marinot et François Décorchemont.

Une des salles du niveau supérieur est dédiée à l’histoire du verre à boire de 1900 à nos jours. Les autres espaces de l’étage sont consacrés aux oeuvres françaises et internationales des quarante dernières années. Cette période correspond aussi à l’émergence de nouveaux organismes spécialisés. La fondation du centre du verre aux Arts Décoratifs en 1982, et les rencontres internationales du musée du verre de Sars Poterie, sont révélateurs de cette nouvelle dynamique. L’exposition met ainsi en lumière les générations d’artistes ayant transformé l’approche du verre depuis les années 1960 mais aussi une génération récente d’artistes talentueux. Le visiteur découvre ou revoit alors des œuvres de Stanislav Libensky, Jaroslava Brychtova, Bertil Valien, Richard Meitner, Bernard Dejonghe, Toots Zynsky, Alessandro et Laura de Santillana, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass et de plus jeunes comme Damien François, Vanessa Mitrani et Martin Hlubucek. Le Centre International de Recherche sur le Verre et les Arts Plastiques de Marseille, et le Centre International d’Art Verrier de Meisenthal, deux institutions impliquées dans la création contemporaine, sont les invités du musée. Représentés par des réalisations récentes de Philippe Parreno (CIRVA), Michel Paysant (CIAV), ou encore David Dubois (CIAV et CIRVA). Histoire et actualité du verre, histoire du goût, histoire d’une collection, l’exposition éclaire toutes les facettes de ce matériau étonnant qui prend toutes les formes et toutes les couleurs.

Glasgow
The work of Philip Webb
Dates:07/05/2015-07/05/2015

This lecture is being offered as a contribution to the centenary of the death of Philip Webb (1831-1915), architect of William Morris’s Red House, the National Trust’s Standen, and a whole group of quietly influential houses. He had one important Scottish client, the owners of the Arisaig Estate, and in the North of England he was responsible for major works for the family of the industrialist, Sir Isaac Lowthian Bell, around Northallerton, and for George Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle, painter and collector as well as landowner, for whom he did work on the Naworth Castle and Castle Howard estates. Above all, however, he partnered William Morris in the founding of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and, while Morris acted as the spokesman, Webb worked out how to repair old buildings reliably and with as little damage to their authenticity as possible.

Dr. Peter Burman is an architectural historian who has been studying Webb for many years, organised the only conference ever held on Webb and his work, and has produced two major articles on him with more in preparation. He sees Webb as a understated but nevertheless major figure both in the early development of the British Arts & Crafts Movement and in the early history of a responsible British ‘heritage movement’. He is a Guardian of the SPAB and in Scotland he is currently chairman of the Falkland Stewardship Trust, whose responsibilities include a major 19th century country house, and a trustee and Archivist of Hopetoun House. He acts as an arts and heritage consultant across a spectrum of special places.

This is part of the Gilded Glasgow Project.

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters from The Museum of Modern Art
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is widely regarded as the most talented and innovative printmaker of the late nineteenth century. Trained as a painter, Lautrec adopted color lithography in 1891, and it immediately became an obsession: in the decade before his early death, in 1901, he created more than 350 lithographs, from posters pasted up in the streets of Paris to livres d’artistes, fine art editions, and illustrations for magazines, journals, theater programs, books, and song sheets. Accompanying an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume presents more than one hundred prints and posters by Lautrec from MoMA’s outstanding collection of his work. Spanning the artist’s mature career, they exemplify Lautrec’s extraordinary range and ability as a printmaker and brilliantly evoke his milieu and central preoccupation: fin-de-siècle Paris, particularly the bohemian life he shared with the dancers, artists, prostitutes, and impresarios of the city’s burgeoning demimonde. Includes a color poster of Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithograph La Troupe de Mademoiselle Églantine. SIZE 9h x 10.5w x .25"d PAGES 160
