Love Difference Graffiti illy Art Collection
June 5, 2009

The new "Love Difference Graffiti" illy art collection can is customized by the Pistoletto Foundation as part of their Love Difference project, an artistic movement that celebrates and unites the different cultures living along the Mediterranean coast. This distinctive collection is the first to be designed by the project and is striking on its own -- irresistible when you consider the medium roast illy espresso coffee within. The cans come with an easily removable clear plastic sleeve that holds the printed copy. Once removed, the pristine decorated can is revealed.

Love Difference is a network of institutions, organizations and individuals committed to providing society with a new model of cultural integration through art and creativity. Supported by Cittadellarte – Pistoletto Foundation, Love Difference selects the most interesting and sustainable projects which, through creative expression, contribute to the resolution of current social problems and open new areas of thought and research on multiculturalism.


The New illy Art Collection, by Spanish Director Pedro Almodóvar
Date: 25-11-2009
Following the launch of the espresso cup “Los Abrazos Rotos” (Broken Embraces), inspired by Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar’s latest film of the same name, Almodóvar has now created a new original 6-cup limited-edition illy Art Collection in both espresso and cappuccino cup versions.

The collection is a collage of image and color that retraces the most recognized and successful steps of the director’s artistic career by portraying six emblematic scenes from his most admired films.

Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, 1987)
Atame! (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!) (1989)
Tacones lejanos (High Heels 1991)
La flor de mi secreto (The Flower of my Secret, 1995)
La mala educación (Bad Education, 2003)
Volver (2006)

The cups were designed by Juan Gatti (Argentina) who also creates the posters and graphic design for Almodóvar.

“illy has long been the coffee of choice on Almodóvar’s sets. That was how we came up with the idea of approaching him to see if he would be interested in working on the illy Art Collection ”, says Carlo Bach, artistic director at illycaffè. “We were convinced that his creativity and anti-conformist approach to narration would mark another important milestone on our path. He decided to express himself using the pictures from posters of six films that have marked out his cinematic career over the years”.
