Scuola di Palazzo Te – Lino Reduzzi invited as a guest to the course “Fare Arte 2019”, from 25th June to 03rd July 2019 at Palazzo Te, Mantua

Among the projects supported by Fondazione Palazzo Te in Mantua (Italy), again this year Scuola di Palazzo Te organizes “Fare Arte“, a 9-days residential course open to young artists and led by a group of professors composed by researchers, artists and experts in different artistic and scientific disciplines.
This course aims to increase project management skills in the context of cultural production, focusing on the artistic experience as a practice of trainable faculties such as attention, listening, knowledge, design and action.

“Scuola di Palazzo Te – says the Director Stefano Baia Curioni – offers the experience of a practical and fruitful relationship with the cultural heritage and tradition. A relationship that comes from contemporaneity, from poetic and artistic practices and from the awareness that the best cultural design can’t help a live relationship with memory and cultural heritage.”
From this point of view, Palazzo Te, a Renaissance masterpiece by Giulio Romano, is a place in which culture does not deposit itself passively but it becomes living and contemporary, turning into a mutlidisciplinary space for learning and experimentation, a real workshop in which creative processes can arise.

It is precisely in this context, therefore, about the past and the future, the tradition, about Italian handcraft and artisanal skills and their application in contemporary projects, that Lino Reduzzi will speak as a guest of the course, telling and showing some projects realized by Studio Reduzzi that “so perfectly describe the “modernity of ancient”, reminding us of the silent forces and powers of antiquity embodied by the new.”

HSIAO Chin – To the eternal garden

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the mosaics series To the eternal garden by the Chinese artist Hsiao Chin (蕭勤).

The series is composed by 13 mosaics realized by Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin in the period 1992-2015, whose original sketches belong to the portfolio of paper works of the same name: it is a theme particularly close to the Chinese artist, who began to develop at the beginning of the Nineties.

For the realization of these glass works, Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin worked side by side in order to create a specific new mosaic texture: the mosaics are made of colored Venetian smalto tesserae, meticulously hand-cut in small tiles and laid at different heights on various layers, in order to fully match the stylistic requirements expressed by the artist himself.

Some of these works were shown for the very first time in the retrospective exhibition Eighty years of energy: Hsiao Chin’s restrospect & prospect, that the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts of Taichung (Taiwan) organized in 2015 to celebrate Hsiao Chin’s 80th birthday.

HSIAO Chin – Cosmic vortex

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art work Vortice cosmico / Cosmic vortex by the Chinese artist Hsiao Chin (蕭勤).

It is a large mosaic triptych realized by Lino Reduzzi in 2008. It was made with colored Venetian smalto tesserae in about twenty-five different tones: all these colors were directly chosen by both Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin himself in order to permit the most accurate realization of the original sketch drawn by the artist. The mosaic background was realized with white marble tesserae hand-cut in different sizes and it was enhanced by gold tesserae with surfaces both smooth and wavy.

Mario BOTTA – Vase no. 8

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art work Vaso 8 / Vase no. 8 by the Swiss architect Mario Botta.

The mosaic was realized by Lino Reduzzi in 2013 and it is based on the original sketch drawn by Mario Botta. It belongs to a portfolio containing 13 paper drawings that illustrate the series of vases designed by the architect in the period 1999-2001.

In Vase no. 8 Botta pays homage to past and contemporary masters that influenced him. Their thoughts and their works are symbolically represented by their own hands, reproduced by the architect in their stylistic codes. In this way the works of Giacometti, Le Corbusier, Léger, Paladino and Picasso are directly related to the work of Mario Botta, here represented by his own hand at the center of the composition.

Enrico DELLA TORRE – Rhythmic

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art work Ritmico / Rhythmic by the Italian artist Enrico Della Torre.

It is a mosaic realized by Lino Reduzzi in 2010, whose sketch was accurately chosen from the many etchings made by the artist in his long career and illustrated in the catalogue raisonné “Enrico Della Torre. Catalogo generale dell’opera grafica. 1952-2012, curated by Sandro Parmiggiani, introduction by Ernesto Ferrero, technical collaboration of Alberto Reduzzi, Milan-Geneva, Skira, 2012″.

Francesco SOMAINI – Galleria Mazzini, Genoa

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art works designed by the Italian artist Francesco Somaini for the Galleria Mazzini in Genoa (Italy).

They are four large mosaics realized by Lino Reduzzi and based on the original sketches drawn by the artist. These works are located in the sandstone flooring of the gallery and were inaugurated during the G8 reunion in Geona (July 2001).

These octagonal art works (side 122 inches – surface 45 square meters each) are situated in correspondence of the four glass crowns of the gallery. Thanks to the close collaboration with Somaini, Lino Reduzzi accurately chose seventeen types of marble and developed a specific mosaic weaving in order to permit the most accurate realization of the original sketches. The artist also enhanced his drawings with gold inserts that were realized with chiseled bronze tesserae. The mosaics were produced in Lino Reduzzi’s workshop, then transported, installed in the flooring of the gallery and finally polished.

The entire project was made possible thanks to the donations of Carige Foundation, Chamber of Commerce and Trametal S.p.A. (Genoa).


The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art work Ségou by the Italian artist Arcangelo.

The mosaics, made with marble and Venetian smalto tesserae, belongs to a series of works realized by Lino Reduzzi and designed by the artist for his solo show Kenya – Masaï – Ségou, held at the Aragon Castle in Ischia (Italy) in the summer of 2011. The exhibition was organized thanks to the collaboration between the Association Amici di Gabriele Mattera and the Galerie Placido (Paris) and it was supported by the Neapolitan Chamber of Commerce.

Walter VALENTINI – Travel

Today we inaugurate the web section “Mosaics” publishing the art work Viaggio / Travel by the Italian artist Walter Valentini.

The project consists in a large wall mosaic and a related stretch of water designed by Walter Valentini and realized by Lino Reduzzi. The mosaic was made with marble, Venetian smalto and gold tesserae. The tridimensional parts that enhance the installation were appropriately produced, covered with mosaics and finally installed.

STUDIOREDUZZI.COM is finally online!

We proudly announce the online publication of our official website: www.studioreduzzi.com, which can also be visited from www.reduzzi.it!

We are now working in order to organize and publish the most important art works that Studio Reduzzi and Lino Reduzzi have realized in these years of intense practice, working alongside contemporary artists and architects of international renown. Our main goal is to show a comprehensive overview of our skills, supported by rich photo galleries and detailed technical sheets for each work (stained-glass windows, mosaics, decorations and installations).

The site is actually under construction because of the large amount of material to be prepared: our commitment is to periodically update the portal, adding each time new art works and unreleased material.
