I just received an invitation for the opening of a great exhibition in Venice, which I will most probably attend and I copied part of the Press release included in the invite (below in Italic). During Venice’s 13th International Architectural Exhibition, from August 27th to September 28th, Molteni&C and Rubelli will be paying homage to Gio Ponti with the “Vivere alla Ponti” exhibition set up in Palazzo Corner Spinelli, the Rubelli company’s historical head offices.

The exhibition’s main protagonists will be the furniture collection reissued by Molteni&C and the limited edition of an armchair designed by Gio Ponti for his via Dezza home in Milan, upholstered in the Punteggiato and Rattoppato velvets, also designed for Rubelli by Gio Ponti and displayed at the 1934 Biennale.

This blog is about interior design and art and I will present an Italian version of them, with new trends, timeless decor, iconic pieces, design ideas. At times I will be just musing about "a certain Italian way of doing things". Follow me on this virtual journey to my country.

Albarosa (...) my compliments for the blog! Have a great day!
Elsa Peretti, jewellery designer extraordinaire.
Having grown up in Austria I love your European perspective blended with North-American flair. Also, your photos are gorgeous! I look forward to learning more.
Claudia Juestel, Interior designer.
Albarosa, you are the best museum guide I have ever known. You have so much knowledge about the arts that it was mind boggling. I am certainly more educated because of our time together and for that I also thank you. Ciao, Tobi.
Tobi Fairley, Interior designer and blogger.
I am really enjoying your blog entries. I am so glad you are bringing such a refreshing side to the blogosphere.
Ivan Meade, Interior designer, artist and blogger.
I like the way your blog treats me to wonderful surprises I might otherwise never see. I love your taste - a wonderful poet mix of grand and humble, elegant and unpredictable and sadly it is something we don't get to see often in North America where "purchasing power" often outstrips taste. Albarosa, there is always so much to learn from your blog. Brava.

We spent an hour looking through the wonderful images at Brillante Home Decor, an exciting design blog that we stumbled across. The author has an incredible eye for finding juxtapositions between the modern and classical styles.
Italy, design, an edge, a softness, a sensitivity to all things shows up in your blog.
Patricia van Essche, artist and blogger.
I think your blog has a distinctive voice that is refreshing.
