René Caovilla enhances the already prestigious and compact group of those companies that for decades have supported, with enthusiasm, commitment, even passion, the exhibitions and cultural programs of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Worldwide renown as the master of sophisticated luxury women’s shoes, for eighty years René Caovilla has been conceiving and producing shoes and accessories distinctive for their superb craftsmanship, charisma and creativity. The creations of René Caovilla have become a symbol of the traditional art of shoemaking in Venice, thanks to their charm, to their exquisite handmade detailing and to their contemporariness and femininity.
Intrapresæ Collezione Guggenheim, the first and still the best known project of its kind in Italy, began in 1992 as a strategic partnership between the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and a number of companies that shared a passion for art and a conviction in the value of investing in support of culture.
“We believe we share with the extraordinary personage of Peggy Guggenheim a spirit of audacity and of sensuality in our creations, strongly marked by their lively personality, femininity and a hint of extravagance. We believe too in the power of artistic expression and we are honored to be able to support one of the major museums in the international artistic panorama.” Edoardo Caovilla, COO and Creative Director of the brand, commented enthusiastically the entry of the company to Intrapresæ Collezione Guggenheim.
‘Art inspires Business. Business gives life to Art’, the motto of the Intrapresæ, perfectly expresses the identity of the group and the vision that sustains it ongoing commitment: to promote creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship to the benefit of culture. Since its origins the innovative project we have called Intrapresæ Collezione Guggenheim has been based on principles of continuity, community and communication through culture, as a contemporary form of corporate communication. It is indeed thanks to the constant support of the numerous companies that make up the Intrapresæ and which over the years have believed in its mission and which have coalesced as a group, that the Peggy Guggenheim Collection today can continue to organize first-rate exhibitions and educational programs for its public of the future,” started Philip Rylands, director of the museum in Venice.
