PALAZZO ZABARELLA (PD)
Padova, 26th October – 1st May 2020
At the request of the Bano Foundation, which follows the exhibition project, we have created customized display cabinets designed to showcase some of the most prestigious private collections in the world, including over seventy masterpieces by Edgar Degas, Eugène Delacroix, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh; this is the private collection – later made public – by Paul Mellon and his wife Rachel “Bunny” Lambert, two of the most important patrons of the last century.
The works come from the Mellon Collection of French Art from the Virginia Museum of Arts and will be exhibited in the evocative setting of Palazzo Zabarella in Padua from 26th October 2019 to 1st March 2020.
The set up made by us includes:
- 1 case 84x200cm with base in Corian col. Diamond Blue and glass bell containing one of the most famous works by Degas, “La Piccola Ballerina, 14 years old”, ca.
- 4 cases 54x160cm with base in Corian col. Seagrass and glass bell containing the famous equine sculptures by Degas
- 1 case 74x180cm with base in Corian col. Athena Gray and glass bell containing the largest sculpture among those depicting horses made by Degas
Our showcases are characterized by a particular opening system that provides for the vertical sliding of the glass bell, while the display area is free from uprights thus ensuring maximum visibility of the exhibits.
All the materials used are antibacterial, antifungal and anti-rust; the closure can be keyed, with laminated glass for a high level of security.read more >

MICHELE SPANGHERO, NATURA MORTA (LEMONS), 2016 – INTERACTIVE SOUND INSTALLATION
The sound sculpture in its formal composition recalls the classical concept of “natura morta”, still life paintings, trying however to analyze, through the sound, the vital energy that is still in the picked up fruit. Two electrodes are therefore inserted into the fruit to convert chemical energy into electrical potential used to record and modulate the sound which is then reproduced inside an acoustic sphere made in acrylic stone.read more >
