LANIFICIO LEO - Mammaroma Blanket
Mammaroma Blanket by Lanificio Leo is a plaid-tapestry in jacquard knit with a piqué weaving technique.
Mammaroma was born from the need to tell a different story, to create a 'narrant' object. The story told is inspired by Mamma Roma, a 1962 film written and directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini and interpreted by Anna Magnani, immortalized in the moment of her liberating scream expressing a desperate desire for change.
The intent is to break the void of form with unexpected signs and visual values to look beyond, to find unsettling aesthetic balances.
