the special setting for ‘taste lounge’ was conceived by paola navone as a stage with the spotlight on richard ginori 1735 collection and the many images and visuals linked to the history of the company. these include porcelain from the factory, whole, broken to make pieces of a mosaic or reworked in different ways, for a state of the art makeover of the ginori identity and style. the exhibition featured pieces in porcelain exclusively created by navone for the fourth edition of taste.
