It is with great pleasure that Fonderia Nolana Del Giudice together with LABINAC announce the opening of the exhibition dedicated to the memory of the artist and designer Riccardo Dalisi, in Via Crispi 69, on 29 September 2022, from 12:00 to 20:00, titled


Il design dell decrescita:
Un omaggio a Riccardo Dalisi


De-growth Design:
A Tribute to Riccardo Dalisi


The exhibition will present 26 unique design works by Dalisi, almost all original prototypes, that were generously loaned by Atelier Dalisi.

Riccardo Dalisi was a designer who always knew how to combine work on an industrial scale with the artisanal. An artist tout court, it could be said, whose work ranged from design, in the strict sense, to the free interpretation of the artist as more commonly understood. Each artistic possibility was used by him in a special and absolutely unique way, giving a profound meaning to whatever he created.

In the selection of the objects that are on display the joyful and playful aspect of the Dalisian approach to design becomes evident. Experimentation on and with the material results in elaborate shapes, and becomes one of the designer’s distinctive features.

Riccardo Dalisi’s works in the show interact in continuity and in a game of references with works by LABINAC, the complete the exhibition.
