In the middle of the narrow Venezuela Street in the San Telmo neighbourhood, Wussmann, a place where an art gallery and a stationery live together, shinesサン・テルモの近く、ベネズエラ通りにある「ウスマン」は、セザールとセレステ・メネガッゾ・カーネが設立した文房具屋兼アートギャラリー。文房具屋としては、高品質で豊富なお店をモットーに、アートギャラリーとしては、有名なアルゼンチンアーティストの作品が展示されている。
加えて、1年程前からは現代アルゼンチン絵画に特化し、若きアーティストに場所を提供したりもしている。
ウスマンの商品は非常に魅力的で、最新製品「アートデジタルペーパー」は多くのアーティストにも人気だ。
建物の構造がまた変わっており、丸いガラス窓からお客さんが地下を覗き込むことができ、そこにはアートブックストアや印刷所がある。サン・テルモの風変わりな建物は、いろんな人の好みに合わせてエキセントリックなツアーが楽しめる。

. Stemming from the concept of elegance and authenticity, Cesar and Celeste Menegazzo Cané have created Wussmann, a special place where you can buy special high-quality products.

As a stationery store its sticks out by its way of binding and printing and by the papers they offer – good-quality and a great variety.

As an art gallery, it is a really special place, both for its dimensions and structures and for the great stature of the acclaimed Argentinean artists whose works are exhibited: Carlos Arnaiz, Juan Astica and Carlos Bissolino among others.

In addition to the renowned-art gallery there is also a space for young artists – opened about a year ago – which specializes in contemporary Argentinean painting.

The range of products in Wussmann is highly attractive: shocking coloured-leather diaries with elastic bands and a pocket (52USD), photo albums made of leather and hand-made marbleized paper (as from 84USD), stationery boxes to personalize (as from 40USD) and people’s favourite: leather diaries with titles such as “erotic fantasies” or “Why am I so crazy?” on the front cover (24USD).

One of Wussmann’s latest products is Art Digital Paper, a paper destined for digital printing – many artists go there especially to buy it -.

As well as the objects on sale, another surprising fact is the structure of the premises, which is not conventional at all: circular glass windows on the floor allow customers to peep into the basement, where an art bookstore and the printing workshop function.
Among the picturesque spots in San Telmo, Wussmann offers an eclectic cultural tour for all ages and tastes.
