    The message that Mirabili intends to portay involves well-known artist and designers, selected for their particular gifts and their poetic world, lending an innovative and sensitive contribution to the cultural image of the habitat as “Art of Living”.‎ It is a collection which wants to communicate with art, by means of visions and emotions: a quality that justifies its meaningful presence in museums, art galleries and in collections of qualified collectors.‎

    New free art is becoming an eeryday item, even though is it abstract and poetic; it is changeable in that is applied without prejudices and circulated without inibitions through living spaces.‎
    It corresponds ever more to the idea and ideals of need.‎
    It enters dwellings not merely to be looked at, but also to interact in the life and with the wishes of people; not only to decorate but also to animate; it cannot be confined to a frame or a stand, and its challenge is to introduce fragments of aesthetic utopia beyond the temple of the Muses, into the home of man.‎
    MIRABILI was created in the mid eighties as the synthesis of the experiences and perceptions of Sergio Cammilli, a protagonist of Italian design of the sixties.‎ Interaction with other experts and artists gave life to a theoretical, practical and productive laboratory, as an initial and highly original phenomenon in renewing the Art of Living with a modern feeling for the old.‎
