WHEN: from 15th January 2020
PRESS: Press Release
Starting from 15 January 2020 it will be possible to book Vincenzo Cuoco's home (a famous Enlightenment) discovering the beauty of the place, between art, design and architecture.
"Casa Cuoco" is a nineteenth-century residence whose interiors were embellished by the installation of a neon artwork designed by the international artist Lorenzo Vitturi and created by F/ART as light partner for Airbnb. All the works fit into the broader context of the architectural work carried out by Eligo Studio, which takes up the theme of monochrome volumes, outlining the different areas of the house.
This is the fourth artist residence joined in Airbnb project "Italian villages", in collaboration with MiBACT.
The work consists of three elements: "Oltremare Est Ovest" ( overseas east west ) is the first, placed on the entrance stairway to the house and accompanied by a neon light made by the company F/Art. It was positioned according to the cardinal orientation of the village, as well as the two minor works, “Oltremare Sud” ( overseas south ) and “Oltremare Nord” ( overseas north ), also depicting subjects similar to the main work and placed inside the house in symmetrical dialogue with respect to window that opens onto the valley.
Partner: F/ART, Foscarini, Caparol, cc-tapis, Vitra, Diesel with Moroso, Ex.t, Paradisoterrestre, Smeg, Bitossi Home.

Lorenzo Vitturi starts from reading the book Platone in Italia by Vincenzo Cuoco himself, focusing in particular on the duality between the earth and the sea described in the novel.
