By June 2nd, 36 works by outstanding artists and 32 items designed by Italian designers and made by local companies will be displayed in the courtyards, halls and gardens of Palazzo del Quirinale, seat of the Presidency of the Italian Republic.

The items chosen for Quirinale Contemporaneo — a job backed by President Sergio Mattarella and curated by Cristina Mazzantini — will probably be on permanent display in the Palazzo, a homage to the creativity and productivity displayed by our nation within the past 70 years.

Oluce’s merchandise selected to become part of the series – Atollo and Zanuso – were designed respectively by Vico Magistretti in 1977 and from Marco Zanuso in 1963. Objects endowed with enduring charisma, they have become icons in the business of lighting and of Italian design worldwide.
