Ottica Cassano hosts exhibition of Autofocus 5 winners a

The project that won the competition promoted by VANNI eyewear with the collaboration and support of the association of young Italian artists is on display in Molfetta

VANNI and Ottica Cassano have taken the freshness of young Italian artists to Molfetta, where their refined spaces are inspired by the visionary expressiveness of two Turin artists. Mattia Macchieraldo and Flavio Palasciano, the winners of the fifth Autofocus competition, exhibited in Turin during contemporary art week and are now at Ottica Cassano.


The Macchieraldo/Palasciano exhibition is a journey of discovery. Geographical exploration is the core of their work that also includes three-dimensional aspects. It is not an travel exhibition: these are imaginary adventures, the real quests lie within ourselves. On paper, in the microscope slides or in the photographed tubs there is a "scientific illusion", said Olga Gambari, who selected their project from the many that were received. A poetic play of conceptual and perceptive deception that links history, science and art to the past and the present.


The exhibition is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, from 6pm to 10pm at 39 Via XX Settembre, Molfetta. At that time it will be possible to see the entire collection of VANNI vision and sun eyewear. Created 25 years ago, the brand is now one of the international protagonists in the eyewear designer market and is synonymous with originality. The guests of the evening will receive an exclusive VANNI accessory in acetate.
