The exhibition FIRME & COLORI – SIGNATURES & COLORS by architect Laura Villani intends to present to the press and the public nationally and internationally as a new proposal for investigation and better understanding of the great protagonists of creativity and design. Every artistic personality will participate with a selection of three colors he believes to be his most beloved combination and the one closest to his creative world.
The exhibition, housed in a spectacular, high-impact installation, will be held in Bologna on the occasion of the first edition of SAIE3. With the aim of presenting for the first time the colors that each personality prefers as an essential element of his creative world, some of the most important representatives of the international art world (architecture, design, art, photography, fashion, music, sports, etc.. ) are been invited to submit their signature and a selection of three colors. The calligraphic sign of the signature and the three colors selection are in fact expression of the creative uniqueness that makes it possible to identify the artist and his work. A personal code that this time does not act through the language of drawings and projects by images but through another highly symbolic and identifying language: the signature and the color. A kind of creativity bar code. The colors, always able to combine nature and artifice between designed space interacting with the natural world, are an element that enhances and personalizes each architectural project and a basic element of design, art and fashion.
