Il cielo in una stanza
Il cielo in una stanza (The Sky in a Room) takes stock of the Italian research towards a sustainable approach to flooring and wall covering materials through a narration of the many approaches Italian companies take in the relevant supply chains and their contribution to sustainability.
From raw materials to end-of-life, from creativity and craftsmanship to industrial processes, the exhibition drives visitors through examples of excellence in Italian production aimed at sustainability.
The title wants to capture three aspects of the inquiry carried out through the exhibition. Sky stands here for environment, the precious element the materials on display aim at protecting while creating comfort and beauty for the human species. A room is quintessentially the space all these materials dress and complete by providing amicable skins to floors and walls. Finally, Il cielo in una stanza (The world we love in) is an unforgettable, profoundly Italian song born several decades ago and still ever fresh – just like many of the companies featured in this research.
