On the occasion of the 13th Biennale die Architettura in Venice the exhibition ”Programmare l’arte. Olivetti e le neoavanguardie cinetiche” is taking place in the renovated showroom of Olivetti.
In 1957, Carlo Scarpa won the Olivetti award for architecture and was consequently commissioned to design the Olivetti store at the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The store is now open to the public again and besides the opportunity to see this masterpiece of architecture and the product design of the Olivetti typewriters of different decades, the Negozio Olivetti will act as a gallery and host exhibitions. The current one is dedicated to the artists of the Arte Programmata, a movement associated with the kinetic art, into which the Italian Gruppo T and Gruppo N and the artists Bruno Munari, Enzo Mari and Getulio Alviani were involved.
