Exhibition “1984-2024 Alabaster rediscovered” | Volterra

28/03/2024 - 09/05/2024 ore: 9:00 - 19:00

Palazzo dei Priori, Piazza dei Priori, Volterra


On 23 March, the 13th-century Palazzo dei Priori inaugurates the exhibition ‘1984-2024 Seeking alabaster: alabaster rediscovered’ in the Sala del Giudice Consolatore. The exhibition will be open until 9 May from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm.

After forty years, L’Alabastro Ritrovato aims to bring to the attention of Volterra and the public objects that represent the first important encounter between craftsmanship and design. The project as a whole was awarded the ‘Compasso d’Oro’ prize in 1987 (Philippe Starck was on the jury) and received numerous positive reviews in specialised magazines. Thus were born the small alabaster and bronze totems and the very elegant turned forms by Carlo Bimbi, the small and precious perfumers by ‘Studio Arcanto’, the classical myth in the drapery of ‘Ester’, the Great Mother by Isanna Generali, a challenging and rare work due to the large size of the sculpture.
