Rubelli, the historic Venice company currently run by the fifth generation of the Rubelli family and world leader in the design, production and distribution of high-end furnishing fabrics, supplied all the textiles for refurbishing the interiors of Casa Necchi Campiglio , a splendid house in the heart of Milan owned by FAI , the Italian heritage organisation.
The company’s brands make Rubelli a top international group, represented by its showrooms in major cities in Italy and elsewhere.
In addition to private homes Rubelli fabrics have been used in world-famous theatres, castles and museums throughout Europe as well as royal palaces.
Rubelli has always supported the world of art and culture by its promotional work. It has sponsored theatres, museums and organisations such as La Scala, La Fenice, the Albertina in Wien, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and the Fondazione Arena in Verona.
True to its role as sponsor, the Venetian company was pleased to accept the invitation from FAI to take part in the restoration of Casa Necchi Campiglio. The fabrics were carefully selected both in terms of type and colour tone and range from a plain moiré in linen and cotton to a series of light silk curtains, from elegant damask and velvet to a luxurious lampas, and from luxury taffeta to a classic stripe.
“A total of more than one thousand metres of fabric which characterizes the spacious interiors of the Villa in an elegant and sober way” Rubelli’s involvement in the project to restore the villa to its former glory bears witness to its links with all things relating to art and history where they represent an inestimable resource for this Venetian company which shares with FAI a “public” with the same love and respect for fine things.
