The Iconic Venice Biennale And Valentino: The Italian Pavilion

The House of Valentino will endorse the Italian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, directed by curator Eugenio Viola and artist Gian Maria Tosatti.

The 59th Venice Biennale art exhibition, titled The Milk of Dreams, curated by Cecilia Alemani, gives Valentino the perfect opportunity to show their support for the city of Venice.

“The Milk of Dreams takes its title from a book by Lenora Carrington in which the surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination, and where everyone can change, be transformed, become something and somebody else. The exhibition takes us on an imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and definitions of humanity.”explains Cecilia Alemani.

After Perpaolo Piccioli put together his Haute Couture Des Ateliers show in July 2021 in Venice, he has chosen to support the Italian pavilion of Venice Biennale this year!

The Italian pavilion will be set up right in the heart of Arsenal, Gaggiandre, next to the Tese delle Vergini, where the Valentino fashion show took place.

From the 23rd of April to the 27th of November 2022, the Italian Pavilion will be a space where Gian Maria Tosatti and Pierpaolo Piccioli create a dialogue of inspirations which stem from common interests and values to build a multi-vocal community.

“A constant search for ever-changing and unexpected thoughtful and creative artistic expressions, in all forms. Their understanding of human beings and their role in society within today’s environment. Curator Eugenio Viola will propose a project that acts as a powerful statement on contemporaneity, providing a bold interpretation of the present time” notes the Biennale. Biennale.
