Made in Europe - DAMSS

D. Arnoldi & M. Sarzi-Sartori, Italy - Castelluccio_The ghost town

The work is a tribute to Castelluccio di Norcia, the village which was completely destroyed by the earthquake on August 24th, 2016. The village is well known for the nature of its fields of lavish red and yellow coloured flowers and for its excellent lentils. We recreated the image and atmosphere of this typical Umbrian village as it was before the disaster, over a hill with flowering fields so as not to forget the suffering of people, who have been torn from their homes and their future.

Appliquè, freemotion, embroidery, twisted yarns.

Silk, wool, cotton, lace, thread.
