PRESS RELEASE SARTIRANA TEXTILE SHOW 13TH EDITION.
La Pila is glad to host the 13th edition of Sartirana Textile Show, from the 14th to the 17th of September 2017. The Sartirana Textile Show is considered one of the most important, specialised fairs in the world for antiques and textile arts. It is a point of convergence for international dealers, collectors and enthusiasts in the beautiful set of La Pila, the ancient rice mill of 17th century.
The STS aim is to promote the interest in antique textile art, intended as an art object and a social and cultural symbol, which can combine different traditions from all over the world.
The Sartirana Textile Show is a meeting point for famous dealers and experts of antiques and textile arts in the world.
Two satellite shows will enrich the main fair, this year:
- Gabbeh, geometric Fantasy of Southern Persia. This collection was formed during more than twenty years. A passionate rug lover selected the best pieces available in international auctions and from leading collectors. Most of the exhibits are published and considered among the best examples of their kind. Curator: Alberto Boralevi
- Raqm, in the Sign of Embroidery. This show by David Sorgato is the result of a twenty-five-years long research and a collection of the most rare and prestigious embroidery from all around the world. Each object is a piece of art, thanks to the ability of scrupulous art conservators. This show is the union between two creative moments – a past one rich of mystic sense, and the present one that renovates and transforms the usage of this textiles according to the current aesthetics.
The Tea Time Textile Talks will renew tradition of informal lectures concerning every aspect of the textile art and followed by a convivial moment with tea and biscuits. These lectures are open to everybody interested in textile and simple curious.
This year the subjects of the lectures will analyse the main aspects of the two collateral shows.
