Studiocinque e altro is moving and they’ll be waiting for you on the 15th of December!

Handmade design where the main character is always the fabric.

Almost two years ago I wrote about this wonderful workshop in Trieste and today I’m going back to it because they are moving to a new location, always in the same neighbourhood. From the industrial building in Viale D’Annunzio 4, Paola Fontana (sister of Alessio Fontana from Fontana Luce Light Lab, remember?) and Roberta Debernardi…

Blu di Prussia: handmade art in Trieste.

Wood, fiberglass, recovery, poetry and lots of passion!

In Via Cadorna 10, in the area that is developing in Trieste, one of those streets that I often confuse (Via Diaz or Via Cadorna? I always need to be careful not to mix them up), there’s a little shop with a handmade wooden wing at its entrance: here I discover Blu di Prussia (Prussia…

Atelier Laboratorio degli In-Perfetti in Trieste – a mix of wood, Murano glass and metal.

Two artists who moved from Veneto to Trieste

In 2014, in the old part of Trieste, precisely in via d’Aosta 6/a, the Atelier degli In-Perfetti opened (which means the imperfect workshop). There can be beauty even in imperfection: this is their workshop’s claim. The owners Raffaella and Sandro, two creative and friendly people with an infectious enthusiasm, introduce me to their boutique. One…

Alberto Rocca: wooden sculptures Made in Trieste.

Artwork born from a deep connection with nature.

Another casual encounter… When Trieste’s local newspaper “Il Piccolo” published an article about my web project connected to the opening of “MissClaireHome”, I received an e-mail from Barbara Chermaz, Alberto’s wife, asking if I was interested in their creations. I’d never seen their sculptures, so for the first time I went to have a look…

Anna Vedeneeva: femininity sewn into her clothes

A Russian stylist here in Trieste

  Today I’ll tell you about a Russian clothing brand entirely hand made: Anna Vedeneeva Couture. Vedeneeva’s style combines the best qualities of Parisian sensuality, Italian elegance and Russian femininity. Anna Vedeneeva Couture is a brand created in 2015 by the designer Anna Vedeneeva, who I had the pleasure to meet at the event “La…

Vud: local designers Made in Trieste

Wood, ceramic and metal in a mix of Nordic and Japanese style.

In Trieste almost everyone knows about VUD and its workshop in via Diaz 15a, but I definitely need to talk about it for anyone who will come to visit Trieste, to remind them to stop by and visit this original concept. Vud is a project of Rosa and Filippo, two architects that lived for a…

The three-dimensional art of Paolin jewellery

A mix & match of creativity, technique and style

  The jewellery I’m showing you today comes from the creative talent of Francesca Paolin, a young artist from Treviso. I was lucky enough to meet this great designer at the event “La dolce vita” in Trieste, where I admired her creations and fell head over heels for her unique style. Francesca started creating her…

L’isolachenonc’è (Neverland) in Trieste: local leather artisans since 1979.

My first handbag and the first custom made sandals for my son!

Everything always starts by chance … the first heat forces me to pull out summer clothes and, like every year, my son needs new summer shoes! The shoe wear that we both prefer (Giovanni and I) is the classic leather sandal, the friar stylel: two leather strips and a small buckle around the ankle. Simple…
