I asked Massimo for a glass which would hold water without taking away its freedom, to be able to have it alive on the tables of the Riviera.
A form which could leave it free, as water knows how to be, slipping through our Free forms which could keep it alive, as when it dancingly reflects from the waterways upon the walls of the City. Massimo has caught several of these forms, and we have chosen two.

This project was born from the need to relate the improper use we make of our planet.
Regardless of what 'that surrounds us, we continue in the destruction of flora and fauna that
should instead accompany our lives.
Photographing a series of extinct birds I wanted to document what we have lost, their beauty
and their role among us.
Documenting the species and their last sighting.
Through this work you can get to touch drowsy consciences, distracted by passage of time,
documenting where we come to be ready to deal with where we're going
Micheluzzi Glass is a collection of handmade glass designed by Elena and Margherita Micheluzzi. Daughters of Venetian glass artist Massimo Micheluzzi, the two sisters are continuing the family tradition by developing a new line focused on glass homeware. The fascination with their father’s work and the strong bond with their native city, Venice, inspired the two sisters to experiment first hand with this ancient craftsmanship and its infinite creative possibilities. Each piece in the collection is unique, hand blown in Murano in collaboration with skilled artisans and finished with techniques that transform the surface and the perception of glass. All differing in colour, shape, size and finish, vases and glasses are conceived as decorative objects which can be mixed and matched in multiple variations and serve as vessels in diverse settings.

The space, that world of visions that must spring out of appearance, unstoppable breath of reality... that reality that passing by the form of his specific body, pulsates with an energy coming from the neverending intimate abyss
