Celebrating Italian design

Officine Panerai sponsors exhibition at Musée d'Orsay
A keen supporter of the arts, the watchmaker sponsors an exhibition exploring the artwork of early 20th century Italy

Teaming up with the esteemed Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the Officine Panerai is sponsoring an exhibition featuring the works of notable Italian artists such as Carlo Bugatti, Eugenio Quarti and Federico Tesio. Titled 'Dolce Vita? From the Liberty to Italian Design (1900-1940)', it is broadly divided into the turn-of-the-century 'Liberty' style, futurism, classicism and rationalist styles. The exhibition takes a trip through one of the most prolific periods of design in modern Italy, with artists and designers coming together to create a distinctive design language that sets Italy apart stylistically. It is currently ongoing and will run till 13 September 2015.

Musée d'Orsay,  1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris, France
