WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

We lived in the Bolognese Apennines and then in Venice (Mestre, to be precise). We have studied both at the IUAV of Venice, both BA and MA. At the same time the studies were alternated internships, such as Gregorio da Carol Christian Poell and both at Raf simons, collaborations with magazines such as Cactus Magazine and Dust Magazine (for the development of the capsule), and experiences in organizing events of different types (an example is the contribution in costumes for the performance of Luigi Nono’s Illuminated Factory in collaboration with Spazio Punch and Iuav).

THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION

More than a collection, it is a small atlas of iconographies, passions and patterns that have followed us over the years. These elements contribute to delineate different characters that could also have an autonomous life: the pinocchio, the soubrette, the sartorial tailored suit by an employee, two burkini etc. Maybe we were thinking of the characters in a plot for some screenplay. Intended, not concluded, there is the concrete idea of ​​an accumulation to the “Italian”: politics, heroes and anti-popular heroes, dialects.
