Internationally renowned and award winning Interior Designer, Maurizio Pellizzoni, has designed the Lecture Theatre at this year’s Masterpiece, on the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Maurizio Pellizzoni’s ‘Secret Garden’ themed installation emulated a story derived from his Italian roots. From the lined streets across towns and cities of northern Italy are an array of beautiful hidden gardens behind heavy doors of grand palazzos and rough walls that have stood for centuries.

The narrative of these magical gardens enriched with Italian history and art is the inspiration behind Maurizio’s Secret Garden design. The theatre, a green oasis draped in elegant materials and lighting, features a selection of art works, state of the art acoustics, an assortment of beautiful plants and terracotta pots as well as a stunning full drop living wall. Featured works include several acrylics by John Golding for Piano Nobile, works from Louise Nelevson from Cortesi Gallery and Ricardo Mazal and Sohan Qadri for Gallery Sundaram Tagore.
