“Solar Quadrant: Stefano Arienti at Villa Carlotta”

Villa Carlotta hosts the solo exhibition by Stefano Arienti titled “Solar Quadrant: Stefano Arienti at Villa Carlotta,” which involves the museum and garden spaces, presenting forty mostly unpublished works. The exhibition’s uniqueness lies in the artist’s explicit intention to conceive the display as a calibrated transposition of certain concepts already inherent in his production. Stefano Arienti has thus envisioned a comprehensive exhibition project that provides a broad overview of his work, involving vastly different environments both inside and outside the villa.
To compose his interventions in the garden, Arienti employs plants, flowers, books, everyday objects, clippings, roots, and reused materials: artistic interventions trigger a kaleidoscopic vision alongside the blooms in the park.

Nestled on the picturesque shores of Lake Como, Villa Carlotta stands as a testament to timeless beauty and cultural richness. This 18th-century architectural gem, with its neoclassical facade and meticulously landscaped gardens, exudes an air of grandeur and tranquility. Stepping through its ornate gates, visitors are greeted by a treasure trove of art and history, housing an impressive collection of sculptures and paintings.

The villa’s interiors offer a captivating journey through the annals of Italian art, showcasing masterpieces from renowned artists. Beyond its opulent halls, the terraced gardens beckon, adorned with vibrant blooms, ancient trees, and charming fountains. These meticulously manicured grounds provide a sensory feast, inviting guests to wander along cobbled paths and savor panoramic views of the lake. Villa Carlotta is not merely a destination; it is a living testament to the enduring allure of Lake Como, a place where nature, art, and history harmoniously converge.
