‘Memories of Italy’ is a collection of beautiful everyday objects that I’ve met and appreciated in my thirty years of life in Italy.
I would like to present these objects following the thread of my memory and the impressions they evoke to me, through anecdotes, places and circumstances that make them dear to me and that arouse love for the many little beautiful things that are lived in Italy.
Meetings and people, like the many talented artisans who pass on their history and their antique mastery through these common use objects.
Italy, like Japan, is for centuries a country of Art and Design, and many objects of millennial use have remained almost unchanged.
Because material, form and function were perfect right from the beginning.
