We are very proud to have at 2018 Sartirana Textile Show Intrecci del Novecento, tapestries and carpets of Italian Manifacturies, thanks to Galleria Moshe Tabibnia.

The important collateral exhibition is an accurate selection of the 2017 exhibition held in la Triennale di Milano by Galleria Moshe Tabibnia.  The exhibition in La Triennale was held from the 12th of September 2017 to the 8th of October 2017 and saw more than 12.000 visitors.

The artifacts displayed in Sartirana explore the diverse Italian artists and contexts that created tapestries and carpets during the 20th century, hence leading to today’s Italian Fiber Art movement.

Such artifacts were produced by different manufacturers, in collaboration with the great artists of the century. The purpose of the exhibition is to let visitors visually experience the creative wave which permeated Italian textile art throughout the twentieth century.

Among others authors or designer, we can count:

Fortunato Depero, Giacomo Balla, Oskar Kokoshka, Piero Dorazio, Ettore Sottsass and Ugo Nespolo.
