An exhibition at the Baths of Diocletian, in Rome, criss-crosses all the many facets of Antonio Ratti’s life: design and business, art and cultural promotion, the public and the private, in a rich and well-structured route featuring old and modern fabrics as well as contemporary artworks. Also in Rome and for the first time, an exhibition narrates one of the best-known and most symbolic locations of Renaissance Rome: the Gardens created by the Farnese family on the Palatine Hill.
