Mimmo Rotella

Mimmo Rotella collaborates with Venini

Born in Catanzaro in 1918, Mimmo Rotella studied art in Naples and then moved to Rome, where he conducted research and experimentation in photography, photomontage, decollages, assemblage of ethereogeneous objects, phonesthetic poetry and primitive music. Rotella's works immediately attracted the attention of avant-garde art critics and collectors. In the late 1960s he created "Artypoplastiques," a series of tests of prints, colors and perceptions on rigid plastic supports. In 1990 he again challenged himself by painting portraits of 20th-century masters on decollages. These works made him world famous.

For Venini he designed the Replicanti series, a series of luminous objects that prefer to inhabit homes then rather than museums. These works were then followed by the Sasso lamp, made of hand-blown and handcrafted glass and characterized by a particular play of reflections. The glass mass is molded by heat to obtain a shape that evokes a stone.
