The opening ceremony of the “Quirinale Contemporaneo” project was staged in the presence of the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella, presenting a collection of works that represent the ingenuity and excellence boasted by Italy in the fields of art and design. More than seventy masterpieces of contemporary art and design, the result of Italian creativity and fine workmanship, are now permanent fixtures in the residence of the President of the Republic, complementing its classic heritage in a harmonious blend of styles, marks and stories.

Two timeless icons from the historical production of Flos were included in the collection: Arco, by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1962) and Biagio by Tobia Scarpa (1968).

After the showing of a film on the works of art and design objects placed in the courtyards, rooms and gardens of the Quirinal Palace, the President gave a speech, thanking all the artists, foundations, historical archives and companies that have so willingly and generously taken part in the project.

The event also featured the presentation of the book “Quirinale Contemporaneo”, published by Treccani.
