Catalogue Note

“The tapestry has shapes and words with which to talk to the outside, lines and colours to inhabit a daily space just as articulate and colourful. It can silently occupy the wall of a house and, at the same time, break the silence… It prolongs the executive interlocution that has required exchanged and collaboration between the two artists who designed it and those who made it.”

Achille Bonito Oliva cited in: Emilio Mazzoli, Ed., Alighiero Boetti, Mimmo Paladino, Dieci Arazzi, Modena 1992, n.p.
