is an idea of FF3300 Visual arts & design studio
Between craft and design, TuttiSanti is a project inspired by the Catholic and Orthodox iconographic tradition, yet reinterpreting it in a contemporary way that involves the construction of illustrations and objects of furniture, giving value to Made in Italy expertise through new linguistic codes.
TuttiSanti uses a "pop" view to reconsider the central figures of the religious tradition. It combines a thorough study of sacred iconography with very contemporary design and styling approaches.The project aims to reflect on popular affection dynamics using a not necessarily devout key, more akin to the definition of "guardian angel." From the Latin 'Sanctus', past participle of 'sanction': to protect with sanction but also to establish by law (and therefore what is inviolable, sacred), holy is by definition the man or woman who stood for scoring the virtues of their faith during their existence.
The Saint is a divine expression on Earth and a recurrent figure in everyday life: from folklore to family rituals, such as Saint’s day recurrence, to the countless representations of figurative art. Through the figure of the Saint, tradition evokes stories of extraordinary women and men. Regardless of different beliefs, this project intends to celebrate the "exceptionalism" that characterizes human beings.
