GALLERIA ARTEPASSANTE STAZIONE PORTA VENEZIA Railway station Porta Venezia, Milano Entrance METRO corner Buenos Aires/Tunisia
curated by Cinzia Ruggeri, Aldo Lanzini and Luca Belotti.
The exhibition From foot to head originates in the course of Project Methodology of the MA Degree in Fashion and Textile Design NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, Italy). The course inspiration has a root sprouting from Cinzia Ruggeri insight on the desire of everyone to “leave a trace, a sign, a message” Cinzia Ruggeri challenge her students to think of a possible footprint that encompasses the personality of their alter ego. These visions are materialised through the manual construction of the elements that constitute the identity: the footprint, the shoe, apparel and accessory. All elements are hand-made, using a methodology that favours intuition and a taste for storytelling. The exhibition reveals these quiet and poetic presences.
