Special products - Refrigerator of art

THE PROJECT

Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg have teamed up once again for the design of a special edition of the FAB28 refrigerator, transforming it into a work of art. The two companies belong to two different creative sectors but are united by strong values and a tradition of “Made in Italy” excellence: sharing similar backgrounds rooted in the family and local territory, they have a deep respect for tradition and their creativity allows them to skillfully combine eras, different specialties, and sensibilities.

The result of this partnership is the special Fab28 Smeg refrigerator with unique Dolce&Gabbana styling. Each refrigerator features images by Sicilian artists: lemons, the trinacria symbol, cart wheels, medieval knights and battle scenes – all distinctive elements of the poetic marionette theater and the Sicilian Cart as well as important aspects of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The themes developed for each product are embellished with classic floral motifs. These 100 exclusive refrigerators – the result of innovation and a meticulous eye for detail – are one-of-a-kind products that combine Smeg quality and technology and Dolce&Gabbana’s creativity and masterful artisan workmanship.

The artists

Sicilian painters, highly skilled in the complex decorative arts and "treasures of the past", turn refrigerators into unique interpretations of Sicilian folklore. The results of passion, profound creativity and a sense of belonging to their land.

Alessandro Forte paints portraits, sacred scenes and still lifes, the majority of which are painted from life using real models. He has participated in numerous exhitibions in Italy and abroad, and his creations can be found churches and public offices throughout the Catania region.

Flavia Pittalà

Flavia Pittalà was born in Paternò. In 2015 completed her degree at the Accademia delle Belle Arti, specialising in painting. It is to this art that she decided to dedicate herself with passion, creating religious-themed paintings and participating in numerous exhibitions in the area.

Michele Ducato

Since he was a boy, Michele Ducato has pursued an interest in cart painting, an art that has been handed down in his family for three generations, starting with his grandfather who opened an atelier. Working with his father, he is passionately devoted to the decoration and scrupulous restoration of Sicilian carts. Their aim was sharing this art with an ever larger audience and making it accessible to young people.
