The Fortuny. A family story

To mark the seventieth anniversary of the death of Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo, and to coincide with the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale, Palazzo Fortuny pays tribute to the versatile Spanish artist by highlighting the importance of the family context in his artistic development with the exhibition The Fortuny. A family story (11 May – 24 November 2019), curated by Daniela Ferretti with Cristina Da Roit, in collaboration with Axel & May Vervoordt Foundation.

Fortuny – Venetia Studium is proud to be among the lenders of this exhibition that celebrates the creativity of an ingenious and versatile artist, who dedicated his life to painting, sculpture, photography, graphics, interior decoration, clothing, set design and lighting.

Fortuny – Venetia Studium lent not only some of the traditional Delphos dresses and pleated scarves, but also several original lamps and a collection of wooden molds made by Mariano Fortuny himself and now used by the brand to produce handmade fabrics and clothing.
