Lenuvole are fragments of sky, snippets of blue and infinity reflected on sharp rectangles; a series of jewels inspired by the sky and by freedom.
The protagonists of the collection are the expanses of white and blue clouds, pictures of the skies of Sardinia and Emilia Romagna.
First printed on paper and then patiently applied to thin sheets of aluminum, the clouds are set inside broken, hard, angular geometries that contrast with the softness of long, handcrafted silver chains.
Paper and metals are juxtaposed with strands of river stones threaded together like precious pearls, crystals of resin and pigment, birch wood modules or frayed silk ribbons. All these materials are called upon to dialogue with each other in order to express, in a multitude of voices, the concepts of freedom and lightness that underlie the entire project.
The collection was born during the lockdown of 2020 in response to the need for escape and the yearning for refuge in nature.
The images are portions and symbols of open the open spaces so dearly desired during those weeks, representing the urban vision of the sky from which only fragmented stripes between buildings can be seen.
