Bottega Veneta and Mousse invite you to the book signing of Come Stai?, the new collectible artist’s book commissioned by Bottega Veneta with Gaetano Pesce and Matthieu Blazy.

The event will take place Wednesday, November 30, 4–6pm at Bottega Veneta’s site-specific installation within Miami Design District, 153 NE 40th St, Miami, Florida, 33137.

When new Creative Director Blazy invited pioneering designer Pesce to create the space for Bottega Veneta’s Summer 23 show in Milan, it was the beginning of a rich design collaboration. At the heart of the project was the Come Stai? chair, a new expression in Pesce’s oeuvre, which echoes his lifelong quest for individuality and diversity. With an insightful interview between Pesce and Hans Ulrich Obrist, this limited-edition artist’s book explores the ideation, approach, and process of the collaboration, uncovering many connections between Pesce and Blazy’s creative practices and values.

Contributions from Blazy and Maria Cristina Didero document the project’s origins and place in Pesce’s wider oeuvre, while a vivid layer of photographs by Stephen Shore and Sander Muylaert illustrate the chair’s development and production. The volume carries over the Come Stai? design with an atypical profile informed by the chair shape, and cover inspired by its resin and canvas materials.

Just like Come Stai?, each book cover is unique.
