This Milan Based Soprano Stirs the Art Scene
Artist/ Opera Singer, Milan

The husband-and-wife team, consisting of Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari made a big splash at Design Miami in 2015 with their Body Building “anti-gym” set up, a roomful of objects inspired by classic fitness surroundings. They did so well, that even art lover Sylvester Stallone did a mini session at the couple’s embroidered gold punching bag.

The year after they landed the next coup with their NO SEX Clinic, touching a taboo, and again focusing on another world of human behavior.
The NO SEX clinic did provide a peaceful and light pink although provocative sanctum for ‘detox or retox from the overdose or abstinence’.

But Laura has many more hats than being an artist or “director” as she prefers to be called: She is a opera singer and as also the opera relies on a harmonious blending of various “creators”, so does her studio’s success result in her partners design training and her own rather artistic background – two words are being fused…

How could their background be more exciting and we can’t wait to the next theme they stage within the near future…

Art world gent I would love to have lunch with…

Daria Birang.
