NAVAL INTERIORS BETWEEN ART AND DESIGNON THE CONTE BIANCAMANO CRUISE SHIP
In November 2017 at the Civic Gallery of Modern Art in Monfalcone, the exhibition
"Boico - Cervi - Frandoli - Nordio - Naval interiors between art and design" was set up.
A small exhibition dedicated to four architects of Trieste, it is a group that has distinguished itself
after the Second World War as one of the major protagonists in the field of design and design of
naval interiors. In this text we tried to deepen one of their ship design works, that of re-constructing
the Conte Biancamano ship and also to investigate two examples of artistic interventions realized
by artists within the most important public spaces of these ships, by the works of Mario
Sironi and Marcello Mascherini. After the war, cruise ships were also one of the means through
which, thanks to navigation, it was possible to make known the high quality of Italian design,
architecture and art abroad.
