SCIC – Flagship Store
Via Durini 19, 20122 Milan
SCIC presents a temporary concept in which the most talented Italian artists are invited to create a dialogue with the excellence of Italian design. The objective is to create a new space where creativity conquers the space: not a regular show, but a free intervention to bring life to the every day life.
At the SCIC flagship store Silvia Camporesi presents a special project taken from her recent series Mirabilia, a recognition of unusual places all around Italy, photographed in a dream like atmosphere by the artist.
The pictures portrays subjects and themes that were very close also to Franco Maria Ricci – such as the pyramid or the labyrinth. The Milanese store of France Maria Ricci, in fact, it was located precisely here in Via Durini and even today the SCIC flagship store keeps memory of the editor and designer of their logo.
Silvia Camporesi therefore presents a dialogue with the history of the space and it does so by showing a huge picture, able to conquer all the space, creating both attraction and curiosity. Inside the store it will be possible to see a series of works, all part of Mirabilia and all selected as an homage to the history of the space.
