Since 2001 the passion for art of brothers
David and Gianni Overi, brought Formitalia to
takeover MIRABILI Arte d’Abitare, a collection of
limited and numbered editions of artists pieces,
38 worldwide famous designers and artists
created exclusive furniture pieces.
The MIRABILI collection was presented for the
first time in Prato in 1986 in the historical
Datini Palace sponsored by the Councillorship
for Culture of the Council of Prato, by the
Province of Florence and by the Tuscan Region.
Subsequently it has been shown, upon invitation,
at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris, at
the Biennial Art Exhibition in Sydney, in the
Groninger Museum, at the Italian Academy in
London, at “das Goldenezeitung” in Stuttgart, in
the Museo Ideale Leonardo da Vinci, in the Denver
Art Museum, at the Frankfurter Kunstverein,
and at Stiftung Villa Stuck in Munich, Museum
of Modern Art Ljubljana ,Museum Marino Marini
Pistoia and in the Islamic Museum of Doha.
The message that Mirabili intends to portray
involves well-known artists and designers,
selected for their particular gifts and their
poetic world, lending an innovative and sensitive
contribution to the cultural image of the habitat
as “Art of Living”. It is a collection which wants
to communicate with art, by means of visions and
emotions: a quality that justifies its meaningful
presence in museums, art galleries and in
collections of qualified collectors.
New free art is becoming an everyday item, even
though it is abstract and poetic; it is changeable
in that it is applied without prejudices and
circulated without inhibitions through living
spaces. It corresponds ever more to the idea and
ideals of need. It enters dwellings not merely to
be looked at, but also to interact in the life and
with the wishes of people; not only to decorate
but also to animate; it cannot be confined to a
frame or a stand, and its challenge is to
introduce fragments of aesthetic utopia
beyond the temple of the Muses, into the
home of man. MIRABILI was created in
the mid eighties as the synthesis of the
experiences and perceptions of Sergio
Cammilli, a protagonist of Italian design of
the sixties. Interaction with other experts
and artists gave life to a theoretical,
practical and productive laboratory, as an
initial and highly original phenomenon in
renewing the Art of Living with a modern
feeling for the old.
