imore design: the historic properties of Bergame re-imagined by designers
Back once again in Bergamo, Dimore Design is the event that every Sunday, from the 9th September to the 3rd December, opens the doors of several of the town’s historic properties in a combination of art, design and architecture.
This year, Odo Fioravanti, Daniela Puppa, Lorenzo Damiani and Deepdesign are the internationally renowned designers who with their displays, re-imagine five of the city’s aristocratic properties, creating new visions. Each designer is responsible for a different building: Palazzo Agliardi, Palazzo Moroni, Palazzo Terzi, Palazzo Polli Stoppani and Villa Grismondi Finardi show an unexpected side, in a perfect union of tradition and contemporary influences.
The artists have re-designed every aspect: the dramatic drawing rooms, the rich rooms and the lush gardens act as a stage for new work with great visual impact. And surrounded by decorations by Tiepolo and paintings by renowned artists such as Giovan Battista Moroni, Luini and Baschenis, every Wednesday evening a different project is illustrated by the relevant designer as well as the art critic Giacinto di Pietrantonio.
As part of this edition’s new initiatives, the visitors have the opportunity to take a look at the fifteenth century Palazzo Polli Stoppani, recently restored after fifty years of neglect. On this occasion, it houses prototypes by designers such as Alessandro Mendini, Fabio Novembre, Ron Arad and Stefano Giovannoni.
This is an opportunity to visit and enjoy several historic properties under a new light.
