Invitation to travel, shots at the Brion Memorial by Carlo Scarpa

Delivery until May 29, 2022

Cadore Interiors organized a photo contest open to all to enhance and expand Carlo Scarpa’s knowledge of the Brion Memorial, a project that managed to put the small town of Altivole on the international design map, relaunching its exceptional craftsmanship and construction tradition. .

Photographers, professional and non-professional, are invited to be inspired and to express with images the message of excellence of design thinking and its craftsmanship, of which the Monument is a symbol.

The photo contest is, in fact, an opportunity for collaboration and contamination between various business realities, including Brionvega, the company’s heir apparent to the Memoriale Brion family of customers.

A clue

In the document Le Voyage d’Or The protagonist, a Japanese tourist who has come to Altivole to visit the Brion Memorial, is forced to change her plans because she finds the monument closed for restoration. The unexpected leads you to an alternative path of discovery based on a visit to some of the famous craftsmen who worked on the restoration. This path defines a reading of Scarpa’s work, among many possible ones, based on the central detail – the true fixed point of the architect’s work – and the ability to both design and execute it with the utmost skill.

The girl’s visit from Japan, a country with which Scarpa was closely associated with creative kinship and spiritual interest, is a journey into both space and the inspirational lands created by the testimonies of leading craftsmen.

The same journey that the photographer can make by visiting and inspiring himself with the architecture of Memoriale Brion: a journey that unites Venice, Altivole and a northeast corner, to reach the real protagonists: the craftsmen and his other workers the restoration of the Brion monument, the most valuable and mysterious work left by Carlo Scarpa, to whom this competition is dedicated.

Recognized throughout Eastern culture the magic of gold that even in the deepest darkness can discover and attract flashes of light: in the same way the Brion Memorial shines with the same light, nestled and almost hidden in the Venetian countryside.

In carrying out the work in a competition, the photographer will then be able to follow the inspired path of goldfrom the many other handmade details as well as the general atmosphere experienced inside the monument
