The Composizione 57 12 and 57 10 rugs arise from the desire to produce carpets that reproduce the pure shapes and the particular palette of Manlio Rho, to replicate the warmth of its colors that are actually borrowed from the outlying Lombard countryside. The carpet becomes a canvas on which sketch graphic compositions of polygonal figures, arrayed, interlocked and intertwined, in unique color palette.

The decision to make carpets reinterpreting the pure forms and unique color palette of Manlio Rho is a further testament to the intelligent research conducted by Amini into the art world on a quest to discover and popularize immense artistic talents. Indeed, the paintings signed by the taciturn maestro from Como are seldom remembered or, at the most, relegated to a small local fan-base, while more often than not even historicized auteurs enjoy greater popularity, despite it owing more to market trends than artistic merit.
