La Mamma Project


In the project La Mamma the Mediterranean mother is the central figure, appearing as an apron( Christian countries) or as a djelaba (Arabic countries). The project has many different parts, including the Madonna, being the preeminent Super-Mother.

A basic aspect of the exploration derives from the modifications of a large number of original aprons and djelabas leading to new designs.

The most important relationship in Mediterranean life, that of mother and son, made it essential to create a series of works devoted to this theme as well.
