Follina: Lanificio Paoletti dal 1795 – La Via della Lana

Lanificio Paoletti dal 1795
La Via della Lana
The fifth edition of La Via Della Lana - the route of wool – took place in the historical factory spaces of the Lanificio Paoletti in Follina, Veneto. The event focused on the meaningful paths related to wool processing, it’s culture by rediscovering the dynamics of recovery and sharing of values linked to tradition and creating new meanings through the contamination with design areas adjacent to textile design, fashion and art. The theme of the fifth edition, The Future of Origins concentrated on the birth and development of the centuries-old textile manufacturing in Follina and surroundings made possible by the abundance of water and flocks, with the aim of launching a path of innovation industry, the territory and its community.

New York: The Park Avenue Armory – Tefaf New York Spring Fair

The Park Avenue Armory
Tefaf New York Spring Fair
Tefaf is widely regarded as the world’s pre-eminent organization for fine art, antiques, and design.   It gives international dealers the platform to present museum-quality works of all eras and genres to a broad base of collectors and connoisseurs.  Tefaf runs three Fairs internationally - Tetaf Maastricht, which covers 7,000 years of art history; Tefaf New York Spring, focuses on modern and contemporary art and design; and Tefaf New York Fall, covering fine and decorative art from antiquity to 1920. It is also unrivalled in the rigor with which it checks the quality, authenticity, and condition of the works of art on sale at its fairs. Using the latest technical equipment, its vetting committees scrutinize every item to be presented, so buyers can feel confident that any object offered for sale has passed through the hands and under the eyes of leading international experts.
