1. Along the Path of Fire with the Carrier Bag of Recipe, 2021,
Friuli Venezia Giulia, IT Long-distance hiking trail
Together with Francesca Lucchitta, I share the genuine love to move — walk and collect materials (fiscal and in form of written or visual notes) while doing it. At the beginning of the year, in full lockdown, we decided to spend some time during the summer exploring — walking for a period of time in the Alps. In August 2021 we spent 15 days on the Friulian section of ‘Grand Italian Trail’ from Val Sesis to Topolò, Northern East side of Italy. Covering up to 241km path with altitudes difference of 13,700m, we investigated the alpine environment around our home and exchanged knowledge with various people encountered over the 14 different mountain shelters we visited. Hoping to find a way to deliver what we gathered inside “the carrier bags” of our journey in the near future. ‘Along the Path of Fire with the Carrier Bag of Recipes’ became more then a hike, it wishes to be an ongoing conversation between multiple ways of living, narrating and caring for this special climate.
2.‘Table Portrait, Yerma’ play by Gersande Schellinx, 2021, Amsterdam NL Food and Dinner Scenography
‘A Table Portrait, Yerma’ by Gersande Schellinx is an idiosyncratic re-writing of Federico Garcia Lorca’s play Yerma. An immersive play in three acts and three rooms in which four friends gather for an intimate dinner. Each role is distinguished by their own set of cutlery, napkins etc, in other to fulfil their own personality and movements during the whole evening. The dinner menù was thought and made in order to align with the personality of the chef of the night, Yerma, in who I found many detailed similarities with my grandmother temperament behind the kitchen, Romana. Therefore I re-proposed her simplest and Northern Italian dishes with a visual twist: tramezzini with pumpkin hummus; beetroots crespelle filled with besciamella, sage and pumpkin; chocolate-rice-pops brick dessert.
The dinner party took place in multiple evenings in June 2021 in Amsterdam and eventually the set and some play fragments were shown during the Graduation Show of Gerrit Rietveld Academie, July 2021.

Ongoing series of towels Calendars to have breakfast on, lunch or dinner; to do a pic-nic on the grass; to remind you what day it is; to make plans for a small holiday; to dry plates, crockery or hands; to cover the table; to wrap your bread; to hang as a poster; to bring mandarins to your friend’s place.
In the spirit of collaborations, we decided to make it a series. Every year the towel~calendar is re-imagined by new friends. Every spring the people who took care of the previous edition will select two new friends to pass the re-imagination of the t~c to. From year to year — from friends to friends: (2021) Elena Braida & Francesca Lucchitta aka Mora and Lampone >> (2022) Immo Schneider & Kimberly ter Heerdt aka Lemon and Kiwi. You can follow updates and eventually get in contact with Tutti Frutti and buy your calendar towel at @cincincincincincincincin / firstname.lastname@example.org or following this link.

4.Publishing Station (PS), 2020—..., somewhere between Amsterdam, Venice and Barcelona
Initiated by Marta Oliva and me, designed by MAY.
Publishing Station is an ever-expanding experimental project where images and texts are rethought in the form of intervals, rhythms, voices, tensions, pauses. Each episode creates a story, a plot, a tale, trasforming a physical work, a photobook, into a new format. Music is at the center of reflection, an irresistible form of contamination. The visual contents are imagined in different formats to reach the listener's senses, from the creation of playlists to live performances: momentary conjunction of sensations that testify to a bodily experience. Words, sounds and different music genres interweave with one another and guide you through the pages of the book. The aim is to try to experience differently visual contents by imaging what you cannot see.
In collaboration with Graphic Designer Jeanne Vivies, we took care of the academic year program identity. The identity of the Rietveld&Sanberg Library was shaped around the notion of tactility in relation
to the way we used the library on daily basis. The posters are based on scans of the velcro changeable
board that is used as a green screen in the library to announce new events.
