On September 19th, the city of Arezzo, home of antique dealers, saw the inauguration of a modern Wunderkammer commissioned by the idiosyncratic collector Luca Cableri.”My intention”, he said in his inaugural presentation, “is to astound you. From when I was young, I have collected particularly bizarre pieces. I founded ‘Theatrum mundi’, fruit of twenty years of experience, with the objective of specializing in both rare and exceptional pieces from every corner of the globe”.
The project for this modern room of wonders is the brainchild of Arezzo-born Roberto Baciocchi, architect of the Prada boutiques around the world, who has created a somewhat spectacular dressing of the room based on red damasque and wainscoting in light-coloured wood that create a series of niches which harbour the wonders collected by Cableri. The project, realized to create a harmony between container and content, alludes to famous Wunderkammer, arousing further wonder
