ASTON MARTIN (Formitalia)

 - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners

During the Milano Design Week, we took our friend Maria Elena Savini, designer of the LussoMediterraneo brand, to visit the Formitalia Luxury Group stand at Salone del Mobile, taking advantage of the exquisite kindness and welcome of our friend Bruno Baglivo, art curator for “MIRABILI Arte d'Abitare”. (The original and brilliant idea of MIRABILI, born in 1986 from an idea of Sergio Cammilli, is now carried on by the brothers David and Gianni Overi of Formitalia Luxury Group who in 2002 bought the brand).

For those who do not know, the art curator is the one who takes care of the entire organization of the art exhibition within cultural centers, museums, foundations, galleries, trade fairs such as the Salone del Mobile. It takes care of contacting the artists, choosing the works, set up the space where the exhibition will be held. It also finds the necessary funding for the realization of the events and manages the promotional campaigns. Why did I want to emphasize this? Because there are ingredients (in my opinion) that it is not obvious to find in this difficult profession: education, courtesy, kindness and not making promises that cannot be kept. Here are the peculiarities of Bruno Baglivo. Am I biased? Yes, I know. But those who know me know that I also know how to shut up.

New horizons of luxury

Two worlds that meet and create an iconic union: the design of the British automaker merges with typical Made in Italy craftsmanship. Contemporary lines, unique workmanship, minimalism in shapes in harmony with details characteristic of Italian luxury. Formitalia exclusive lifestyle reinterprets Aston Martin with elegance without compromise. The carmaker’s iconic green blends with light blue, fuchsia and gold with extravagant elegance and unique details. 

The event that was held at the Salone del Mobile and was, as always, a true statement of style to discover.

A historic and influential company in the Italian design scene, Formitalia was founded in Quarrata in 1968. It is a success story characterized by great intuitions. While Mirabili is an example of a brand where the boundary between art and design tends to vanish, Formitalia climbed the contract sector via Tonino Lamborghini and Aston Martin licenses, as well as a gallery in the Oltrarno district, on the "piano nobile" of Palazzo Nasi in Piazza dei Mozzi 4, where contemporary art marries designer furniture in an evolution consistent with the company's intrinsic values.
