Baglietto shipyard, based in La Spezia, is the main sponsor of the exhibition “Baglietto – un sogno sul mare” which will be held in the wonderful renaissance setting of Sala delle Compere at Palazzo San Giorgio in Genoa (Italy) from April 7 to May 1, 2018.
The idea has been conceived by the architect Emanuela Baglietto, architect partner of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, and it wants to be a tribute to the glorious history of the shipyard. Emanuela is the daughter of Pietro Baglietto, last owner of the family business together with his cousin Giampiero.
As the main sponsor, Baglietto is fully involved in the exhibition concept: the tradition of a solid artisan history meets with the technological and aesthetic research through a gallery of pictures and installations creating an unusual itinerary to tell a unique and one of a kind entrepreneurial story.
The exhibition traces the fundamental stages of the history of the Baglietto shipyard since their foundation in 1854 with small hulls of gozzi through the first leisure and racing motorboats, the sailing boats, the speed records and the national and international regatta’s victories, the MAS of World Wars and experimental boats, the technological innovations, the boats for exceptional clients and owners, up to become an Italian excellence and a reference for the nautical style and design. Even today – with new Owner Gavio Group – Baglietto brand is known for its ability to offer its customers reliable, high quality products and cutting-edge solutions.
The exhibition is organized in themes that retrace the fundamental stages of the Baglietto shipyard production and highlights the scientific-technological research and the skill of the men who contributed to the realization of this dream on the sea. The exhibition project, realized by the architect Emanuela Baglietto in collaboration with the architect Matteo Orlandi consists of a light structure of wooden sticks, a sort of mikado supporting historical photographs and nautical drawings that seem suspended in the air as well as a series of tables with historical models.
The exhibition will be open from April 7th, from Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00 am to 7.00 pm.
