AMATA BELLEZZA – Flowers and Visions at Villa Carlotta

Mario Carrieri (Milan, 1932) is one of the protagonists of Italian photography.

He dedicated himself to architectural photography, while his peculiar use of light makes him one of the most appreciated photographic interpreters of sculpture.

In the last decades Mario Carrieri  started a personal research dedicated to a single subject: flowers. This traditional theme is transformed through the artist’s eyes into a reflection on the connection between beauty and the awareness of its caducity.

His works will be exhibited at Villa Carlotta, from 15/09/2018 to 04/11/2018.

Glass Flowers at Villa Carlotta


From 14th July to 9th September 2018 visitors of Villa Carlotta will be able to admire Enrico Borsellini’s collection of glass flowers.

The exhibition includes a sampling of the production of the main Murano artisans of the twentieth century, with important pieces by Ercole Barovier, Napoleone Martinuzzi, Toni Zuccheri and many others.


Through her potteries, Mieke Van Den Hoogen highlights inner asymmetries of human soul and transcends classical models to enhance the emotional experience. “In these artworks, I direct all my imagination to experience the pleasure of creating shapes. My creations are full of happiness and for this reason they are different from all other basic utensils or ornamental objects”.
