Asolo is one of the most picturesque and evocative hamlets Italy, gathered on the top of a hill, protected by a twelfth century fortress. It is in this magical place where architecture, art and nature merge in an ethereal union, that Elinor Garnero and Thereza Pedrosa decided to establish a new artistic reality, Beautiful People Live Art.
Every alley, every house, every cobblestone of Asolo scents of an ancient flavor, of a story that you can feel on the skin, you can breathe in the air and leaves its mark on the soul. Over the centuries Asolo has fascinated poets, intellectuals and artists of international renown. Already at the beginning of the 16th century Pietro Bembo paid homage to the village with “Gli Asolani”, while the American painter Eugene Benson visited the city for the first time around the middle of the 19th century, dedicating many paintings to the famous horizons of Asolo. Robert Browning, one of Britain’s foremost Victorian poets, dedicated his last volume of poetry “Asolando” to this town “splendid with magnificent architecture, perfect in every aspect.” The divine of the international theater Eleonora Duse and the explorer and writer Freya Stark both chose to retire and be buried in Asolo, a city they loved for its beauty and serene tranquility.
The Thereza Pedrosa | Beautiful People Live Art gallery is born out of the desire to celebrate interconnections between the arts by promoting artists, sculptors, designers and creatives. The aim is to show how all art forms are facets of a unique diamond, all contributing to the beauty of the whole. The name Beautiful People Live Art itself collects the deepest meaning, referring to the importance of art in our lives, in every aspect of our daily routines. Art that is savoured to the fullest leads to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, making us part of beauty itself.
We live art when a painting in the living room welcomes us and soothes our souls when we return home every evening. We live art with a sculpture in the hallway, which we caress
absentmindedly as we head out to start a new day. We live art with a unique jewel that, like an amulet, channels our energy, strength and self-assurance to face every challenge with our heads held high.
