This Sardinian term recalls the memory of traditional carpets made of rags or of the reuse that for centuries has used strips of recovered fabric as a weft.

The habit of reusing recovered fabrics can be found in various local Italian cultures (for example, the Sicilian frezza) as well as in many other areas of the world (just think of the refined and elaborate Japanese boron fabrics) and is a textile snapshot of the culture of a people.

In the case of the artefact in this collection, weaving is the work of the historic Sardinian Cooperative Su Marmuri, which used thin strips of fabric and assembled them smoothly on a cotton warp.


  • Material: cotton, wool, viscose organza voile
  • Size: 160 x 65 cm

Seduced by the rigorous and geometric use of the ‘textile fragments’ and by the colors incontrovertibly linked to the territory, with the reflections of the sea and the sky, the artist has used the original artifact as a base to create a work capable of celebrating the female work within a community.

For the embroidery of figurative elements, emblem of the female archetype, she used threads and fabrics from the textile archive inherited from a talented Venetian weaver who died recently, thus giving the work an added value of emotions, a tribute to the continuity of the narration of the female in the traditional communities that entrusts the textile art the witness to take in the future. In this way the artist becomes the intermediary between the archaic techniques linked to a territory and the spiritual legacy of other hands, of other places, which in this artifact meet and intertwine, intoning a silent song to the perennial work of women, in a continuous contamination of different cultures, in a single yearning for beauty.
