VIA LATTEA ART
For the cultivated person with the highest expectations, the Via Lattea Art wall light is dedicated to contemporary Italian art from Tuscany, one of the renowned capitals of art.
We start with original paintings created by respected Italian artists and, using serographic printing, we create a fabric shade with the image of the painting on it. Then we attach this shade to the lamp structure which contains LED lighting. The shade is attached by means of PrimoMaestro’s revolutionary, patented new system which uses magnetic attraction to hold the shade on the structure. When the light is turned on, the image is illuminated from behind, the colors showing amazingly true to the original painting. A dimmer is provided.
An added feature is the possibility to change the “painting” by purchasing another shade separately.

MAI PIÙ SOLO (NEVER AGAIN ALONE)
This work illustrates Myriam’s artistry in being able to effectively combine numerous small squares and rectangles of meaningful designs and symbols into a harmonious composition of geometric rhythm. There is a strong geometric flow of vertical and horizontal lines that contain images of life and regeneration such as a spiraling sun, a fish, a man and a woman, a house, arrows, triangles, a flower, in addition to initials (one of which is the artist’s), and the word “solo,” Italian for “alone.” In this intensely personal work, we find an affirmation of life amid the fabric of life’s choices and experiences, both in the real world and in the world of the inner self. Myriam presents symbols that derive from humankind’s collective memory and in so doing, she affirms the realization that we are not alone — “nevermore alone.

MYRIAM CAPPELLETTI is a well-known and respected artist who lives and works in Prato, about a half hour from Florence, where she has her studio. After studying at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence and then at the Accademia Cappiello, also in Florence, she studied the technique of painting frescoes. This latter was particularly enjoyable to her and it enabled her to develop her particular style of creating original compositions of various materials (cloth, paper, etc.) on plasterboard that has been plastered and scored with furrows. Her work has been exhibited in many cities in Italy as well as at important international shows in Shanghai, Singapore, Korea, New York, Miami, and Montecarlo.
Myriam’s work succeeds, through her colors and creative designs, in expressing profound emotions and concepts. In her paintings, her memories, thoughts and ideas become creatively reinterpreted as symbols and designs with metaphorical and poetic meaning that is derived from her inner world.
