Volumnia sounds large. In reality, it is massive.
Volumnia is a project of rebirth of an historical and iconic space of the city of Piacenza, whose beauty has been hidden for years. Enrica De Micheli, gallerist with experience in antiques and modern, offers an exhibition space dedicated to Italian mid-century design inside a former renaissance church in the heart of Piacenza, with rows of columns that spring dozens of meters into the air.
The project was born in October 2018 with the opening of the gallery and the first chapter of an intense cultural offer of exhibitions and events, as the solo show dedicated to one of the main Italian design masters Gabriella Crespi.
A restaurant, IO Luigi Taglienti, was born in the space of the former Monastery carpentry shop, where guests can enjoy a unique experience. Truth, beauty, tradition, and modernity are the ingredients of Luigi Taglienti’s elegant and creative cuisine.
