Pitti Immagine Filati

Back in Florence, this time for Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition,
the 66th edition of the yarns renowned venue.
Let me introduce you to some of the main themes on display:

    1_ NO CAR, let's go for a walk
    Retaking possession of the space around us.
    Get out of the car and listen to the street: faces, voices, rhythms.
    Sort of a fertile chaos of motion and dialogue.
    A chaos made by mixed cultures and experiences.
    Cities will be car-free for walking leading people to meetings
    and dialogue between responsible citizens going around on foot,
    by bike or public transport.
    The wardrobe will be easy and relaxed, real and sustainable.
    Mismatching will be the right thing to do.


      2_ No restaurant, bake some bread instead.
      Eating is essential for creativity but in the right way: fancy
      reastaurants and trendy food places will step aside for our
      friends' kitchens where everybody brings something.
      Cozy kitchens will give a simple, relaxed aesthetic with
      the fragrance of bread, the simple design of tablecloths
      and the most natural colors.
      Raw linen printed smocks almost totally without cuts,
      overlapping like puff pastry held in place by knots.

Come back tomorrow, if you like, for the other themes. Cheers.
