I joined the San Patrignano Project immediately.
In addition to my involvement with Riva, with whom I had already worked on the Briccole Project in Venice, then as now, the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the wooden staves of the casks was to “engineer” the object itself, using it in its essence, not transforming it into something other than itself.
I like mobile things and the idea of using them just as they are. I therefore came up with the idea of threading multicoloured strings joined by big knots between one piece of wood and the other to keep them together and maintain their alignment. The immediacy of use is what pushed me most in this direction.
