Giardino, designed by Carlotta Fortuna
A luxuriant imagination for the Giardino carpet by Carlotta Fortuna, a random and cluttered spray of flowers and blades of grass that embody the overwhelming and regenerative strength of nature itself. It is represented here in a basic, quick and thoughtful sign, like the free brush strokes on a painter’s canvas. Nature, therefore, is the protagonist and the inspiration comes from Botticelli’s Primavera and from its flora full of symbolism: the suggestion of the Renaissance masterpiece is noted in the colour range of the flowers and background, which make this hand-knotted carpet a refined and contemporary work of craftsmanship.
“I have always thought of the carpet as a sacred space, a space that separates where one sits at the centre to contemplate the content. This content, for me, has always been Mother Earth in all her forms.” – Carlotta Fortuna
