“Sono un cacciatore dell’insolito nel mondo dell’arte a tutto tondo” – spiega Luca Cableri riferendosi agli oggetti e gli espositori selezionati per la Wunderkammer.
"I am a hunter of the unusual in the art world in the round" - explains Luca Cableri referring to the objects and the display cabinets selected for the Wunderkammer.

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

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
