 This is a special week for Roberto Alborghetti Show – “Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Italy; the show continues through to November 4th , 2012). The exhibition schedules lectures, workshops with students and videoshows. Lot of people have already visited the show; and other thousands are expected during the week from   October 28 to November 4 (on Mount Amiata and Piancastagnaio there will be parties, meetings and shows for the traditional “Crastatone Days”).  

 

The exhibition – displaced in seven rooms in an ascensional way –  feature 36 artworks and a limited-edition of a three silk scarves series which Roberto Alborghetti produced in collaboration with renowned textile designer Bruno Boggia (who worked with the most famous international fashion designers). The 7th room is really special: it is dedicated to five collages created by Roberto Alborghetti with hundreds of paper pieces collected along the streets from decomposed and torn posters. Five new and never shown before works which are enchanting (and surprising) the visitators. 

  

Show Opening Time: 10-12,30/17-19,30 (Saturday, Sunday and all public holidays; from October 23 to October 27 during “Penne e Video Sconosciuti” national events). For informations and visits by appointment: 039 0577 784134 ; e-mail: info@prolocopiancastagnaio.it.

 

 

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition, as you may see in this “postcard” reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

Lucia and Bruno Boggia, along with their collaborators, participate to the famous Parisian event bringing a range of novelty already appreciated in different parts of the world.

In Paris they propose designs and fabrics which  anticipate the next fashion trends. The Indigo Salon is traditionally considered the “first vision” of what is going to happen to the world-fashion. The Paris Show puts on display ideas and suggestions for the next catwalks and pret-a-porter fashion shows, trying to overcome the effects of the market crisis. Best wishes for a speedy recovery are also coming from the Bruno Boggia Studio’s colorful proposals which focuse on the most effective colors, combining tradition and innovation. As shown in this pics, where geometry suggests ideas and emotions to textiles.

Summer means colors. Summer means flowers. Flowers and colors are one of the dominant fashion trends for the coming seasons 2013-2014. Bruno Boggia Disegni Studio in Como (Italy) – where they have also created the 3 silk scarves series based on my “Laceractions” images – has seized on all floral suggestions in order to create a kind of coloristic great fresco for his textile design patterns. 

Next summer seasons trends (2013-2014) will give preference to colors and shapes drawn by following flowers and leaves shapes. This photo gallery is a special preview of the new fabrics designs which will be shown by Bruno Boggia during the forthcoming editions of the famous Salon Indigo in Paris (September 19-20, 2012) and of ComoCrea (October 29 and 30, 2012).

CAN AN ARTISTIC SILK SCARF CHANGE OUR MOOD? PLEASE, READ THIS ANSWER…

“I TWIRLED AROUND WITH IT AND FELT LIKE I HAD RAINBOW WINGS…” 

LACER/ACTIONS – SILK SCARF – BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

I’m very glad to publish the beautiful comments I received from fellow blogger Meredith –http://healingminds.wordpress.com/ –  about  the LIMITED-EDITION of 3 SILK SCARVES (I created for my “Lacer/actions Art  Project”) now on sale at “LA BOTTEGA DI OSCAR / OSCAR’S BOUTIQUE”.

*

I received the scarf last night and took it outside to see all the hues and texture woven in gossamer.  I twirled around with it and felt like I had rainbow wings.  The transparency makes it look multi-dimensional… like floating colored glass.  I am rich, rich, rich! in color and texture today.

I have a black cashmere dinner dress (long), and I pulled it out to make a long silhouette, then went outside and let the breeze blow the scarf lightly around the still blackness of my form.  The outfit looks so elegant, now, I will wear it to Chicago to celebrate by birthday.  I truly feel like the most beautiful woman in the world… The pictures of the did not captures the extraordinary,  sheer luminosity of the silk, so in the the scarf is more stunning than I even imagined.  I think it is is a wonderful, extra surprise.

I love it!  I love it!

On my birthday, though, I will feel like the most elegant, beautiful woman in the theater wearing my scarf, and letting it flutter in the breeze as I walk.

These are such beautiful, dimension scarves no camera can do justice to the gossamer effect of the silk refracted by translucent color… and when I dance with it and explore its movement through space, the scarf looks like fluid, translucent stained glass.

  Honestly, if you want to impress a woman who’s wild about original fashion pieces, this a perfect gift… and a bargain.  There’s a lot of crap on the market that all looks the same, and is more expensive. I love this scarf, and so does everyone who see me wear it.

Beauty grows.  Never stop discovering, Roberto.  You have greatness pouring from every part of you.

ABOUT SILK SCARVES / LIMITED-EDITION

Their design is unique.

ITALIAN TRANSLATION

UNA SCIARPA DI SETA SBALORDITIVA… COME UN ONDEGGIANTE VETRO COLORATO”

Ho ricevuto la scorsa sera la sciarpa e l’ho portata fuori alla luce per vederne tutte le tonalità e texture tessute in una ragnatela. Volteggiavo con essa e mi sentivo come se avessi ali di arcobaleno. La trasparenza la faceva apparire multidimensionale… come ondeggiante vetro colorato.  Sono ricca, ricca, ricca! Nel colore e nella texture.

Ho un abito da sera di cashmere nero, e l’ho indossato perché rendeva la silhouette slanciata, sono uscita e ho lasciato che il vento gonfiasse leggermente la sciarpa attorno alla mia figura buia e immobile. L’abito sembra così elegante ora, lo indosserò a Chicago per festeggiare il mio compleanno. Mi sento davvero come se fossi la donna più bella del mondo… Le immagini della sciarpa non rendevano la straordinaria, pura luminosità della seta: dal vivo la sciarpa è ancora più sbalorditiva di come l’avevo immaginata. Penso che sia una meravigliosa sorpresa extra.

La amo! La amo!

Il giorno del mio compleanno mi sento come se fossi la donna più bella ed elegante del teatro, indossando la sciarpa e lasciandola fluttuare nella brezza mentre cammino. Sono sciarpe così belle che nessuna macchina fotografica può  rendere giustizia all’effetto, simile a quello di una ragnatela, della seta rifratta dal colore traslucido… e quando ballo con essa e ammiro il suo movimento nello spazio, la sciarpa sembra una fluida, traslucida vetrata a colori.

Onestamente, se si vuole fare colpo su una donna che va matta per i pezzi di moda originali, questo é un regalo perfetto… E un affare. Ci sono tantissime schifezze sul mercato e tutto sembra essere uguale e più costoso. Adoro questa sciarpa, e lo fa chiunque mi vede indossarla.

La bellezza cresce. Non smettere mai di scoprire, Roberto! La grandezza fuoriesce da ogni parte di te.
