Bottega is celebrating Venice’s rich art and design history with Bottega Veneta acting as a facilitator of cultural exchange.

They are supporting a program of performances in hand with the Pinault Collection titled ‘Dancing Studies’ inspired by the ‘Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies’ exhibition and on show until November at Punta della Dogana. They hosted an intimate dinner last night to celebrate this partnership with a performance by choreographer Lenio Kaklea. Bottega has also collaborated with iconic typewriter maker Olivetti on a limited edition of fifteen bags. These were capture by renowned interior photographer Francois Halard at the Olivetti showroom, designed by architect Carlo Scarpa. Matthieu’s first campaign imagery was also unveiled this week in Venice featuring model Dara Gueye and captured by Malick Bodian. Finally Bottega Veneta will continue to be the official partner of the Biennale di Danza in July and help fund the Biennale College danza, supporting emerging talents.
