We’ve been at the Venice Film Festival these days. Like every year, the Lido is totally packed with stars, directors and so many fans. But lots of “cinema workers” as well.
We have to admit we didn’t do a bad job with our Official Bag, being shown off among celebrities like Nicholas Cage, James Franco, Nicholas Cage, Sandra Bullock, Scarlet Johansson, and so on…
Here is what was the atmosphere like:
Great cinema returns to Venice at the end of August. The International Festival of Film Arts at the Venice Biennale is 70 years old and we, too, have returned with a new, extremely desirable Official Bag, renewing our collaboration with the festival.
As international movie stars arrive at the lagoon from the 28th of August to 7th September, we will be ready to welcome workers at the Industry Office and fans alike with a new bag designed specially for them.
Beautiful, comfortable and red – like the colour of the event – this Official Bag is the result of collaboration between the Venice Biennale and Tucano that has lasted over 11 years.
Want to see a preview of this new Official Bag? Here it is:
Our colleagues at ByTucano, our department dedicated to custom products, have applied their usual brilliance and created a product destined to become an object of desire among cinema fans at the Lido, as well as among aficionados who never miss the Venice Festival.
This year, we have an additional surprise: the Official Bag for the event is accompanied by a Special Edition model labelled “Venice Biennale” – available for sale to everyone at all the Venice Biennale shops in the city.
Let’s go to Venice for the 55th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
After ten years of collaborating with the Film Festival, we return once again to the city of the doges to work even more closely with the Biennale, which is undisputedly one of the world’s greatest cultural institutions.
Our collaboration with the 55th International Art Exhibition resulted in producing an exclusive official tote bag, bearing the Venice Biennale brand, naturally, and manufactured by ByTucano, our customised products division.
It’s a bag you can take everywhere with you and one that will become a must-have item to be shown off at all the Biennale’s different venues such as the Arsenale and The Giardini, or strolling amongst Venice’s calli, the city's typical narrow streets.
The 2013 Art Biennale is open to the public from 1 June until 24 November. The title of the Exhibition is "The Encyclopaedic Palace”, a reference to the Italian-American artist, Auriti, who designed in the 1950s an exhibition palace that would house all of the world’s art. Each edition of the Art Biennale, in actual fact, fulfils that dream so sought after by Auriti. We at Tucano are ready to welcome the visitors to the event with our bag.
You can find the official tote bag together with a selection of particularly interesting Tucano products in the bookstores at the Central Pavilion in The Giardini, as well as at the main offices in Ca’ Giustinian, just a short walk from St Marks’s Square.
And whilst we're here we might as well mention the fact that we will be back in Venice in the end of August for the 70th International Film Festival and the 12th edition of the exclusive official bag for the festival. Now a firm favourite.
The expertise of craftsmen manufacturing leather according to the old Italian tradition and the expertise of all of us as we interact every day with the state-of-the-art digital devices. Today, these two worlds have come together to create One Premium, the real leather range by Tucano which goes above and beyond the concept of the computer bag.
Our creative spirit is heading towards new horizons. The goal is to carry your devices with style and simplicity by drawing on our past experience in the field of computer bags and reinterpreting the tradition of Italian leather in an innovative way.
The end result? Here are six must have bags in genuine leather expressing the versatile approach of the new fashion geeks: people who are so tuned into design as to avoid mainstream trends which are “too basic” and lacking in style.
One Premium clutch bag. The bag has a shoulder strap and wrist strap, with delicate and refined designs. It is suitable for the MacBook Air or 11” Ultrabook and includes an organizer at the front for your smartphone and other day-to-day items.
One Premium tote bag. This versatile bag can be easily carried under your arm. Ideal for quickly putting anything into your bag, especially your MacBook or Ultrabook up to 13”. You also have an additional Multi-Fit Compartment for your tablet.
One Premium sleeve. To wear with the adjustable shoulder strap or without. Ideal for all notebooks up to 13”, it gives you plenty of space for your tablet, and smartphone with an outside pocket organizing your accessories and everyday items.
One Premium slim bag. This classic bag for MacBooks and notebooks up to 15” has an exclusive style with its delicate design. With plenty of space for your tablet.
One Premium messenger bag. Who said that cycling around the town had to mean sacrificing style for practicality? Urban cyclists are becoming more and more stylish, as today, you can travel by bike with a bag that is practical but also packed with style. It's comfortable for pedaling and can hold your MacBook or notebook up to 15” as well as your tablet, smartphone and a large number of documents, without losing its form.
One Premium shoulder bag. A solution that is practical but does not go unnoticed. Perfect for getting around in the chaos of the city while carrying your tablet and smartphone with you at all times. The Anti-Slip System designed by Tucano prevents your device from accidentally falling out. Security combined with style.
Micro is small only in name. In fact, it is specifically designed to protect the iPad's younger brother, a synthesis of everything that fans of the Apple tablet love.
Elegance above all. Micro's outer surface sports a sophisticated leather effect and at the same time protects your iPad mini, with its rigid, reinforced rear shell.
The icing on the cake is that the Micro turns into a stand with free tilting support. Easily detach the iPad mini from the hook side to obtain the angle you need. Position it for reading documents, writing emails or watching videos by tilting it to the most comfortable position.
Micro optimizes battery life with its SmartMagnet support that turns the tablet on and off every time you open or close the cover.
Also, Micro offers a complete peace of mind when you store your iPad mini: the screen is well protected and safe from scratches and dust thanks to the cover's microfiber lining.
But Micro is not the only solution for iPad mini from Tucano: we think different to provide a cover to suit everybody's style.
You can choose your own. However, if you love elegant solutions, stylish, but never brash, Micro is here. Available in emerald green, flame red and midnight black.
When it comes to the collegiate retailing industry - CAMEX is it! And of course we couldn’t miss the chance to present our bag and backpack collections to a very large audience of American industry experts.
During our stay at this year’s edition in Kansas City our Italian design is what has really made a difference in this very competitive field.
Lots of people were fascinated by our colorful product range and stopped by to say hello and get to know closer the Tucano design.
Here is a few snapshots of our space.
