Divina - an exhibition by Camilla Bellini

Curated by fashion designer and blogger Camilla Bellini, the exhibition "Divina" celebrates Italian creativity, genius and know-how through an exhibition of design products contextualised in naturalistic and architectural landscapes. In this way, the products of Italian manufacturers become totems with stories to tell, inviting visitors to reflect on sustainability as the only key to access the future.

Il cielo in una stanza – A journey in the Italian research for sustainable flooring solutions
