The MINOTAUR project is inspired by the myth of the labyrinth and the creature that inhabits it. The increasingly large, increasingly complex and labyrinthine cities of the world are now home to more than half of the world's population.
As modern Minotaurs we live in labyrinthine metropolises as creatures that are sometimes terrifying and sometimes innocent, ready to reject and "devour" newcomers but also to "elevate" the places we live in with creativity and beauty.
The map of the city is speculated horizontally, like a Rorschach spot.
An ancestral figure emerges generated by his double, a symbolic figure: the MINOTAURO.
Each city originates always different fantastic figures determined by its shape.
This map is unique and unrepeatable, is about telling the emotion of the vision of the world with a powerful reflection on the beauty of cartography. The map is a writing territory full of pathos and surprises.
City map enter into relation with the leather, is a reduction process of the map from the image to an almost abstract structure, an artistic way of interpretating a certain place, made up of essential lines and balances.
The leather used is unique and chosen to create this city, it has a unique guarantee and code.
Vegetable tanned leather matures and trasforms with the passing of time. It is a rare material that embodies the signs of time as an expression of naturalness.
It is called "vegetagle tanning" for the use of vegetable tannins, obtained from the trunk and bark of trees. The extraction of these natural substances takes place in a way that does not damage the wood heritage because it is waste from wood working.
Vegetable tanned leather is biodegradable and hypoallergenic, free of chrome, metals and synthetic chemicals.
Another typical feature of vegetable tanned leather is the slight difference in color that always are between skin and skin, due to the presence of natural oils contained in them.
A vegetable tanned leather is so natural a product that it can be appreciated and recognized for its small signs, viens, for its scent and its its shades of color. All these features represent the authentic and tangible proof of a high quality product, which acquires value over time.
