Viaggi di Versi 115 (Italian Edition)
Colours are luminous and refined; they are coordinated with each other as well as with the colours of the outdoor fabrics and materials. Giovanni Verga [ Then Etna all at once lit up with gold and ruby, and the paling coast broke here and there into gulfs and obscure promontories. Sicilian embroidery reveals the work of skilled hands and great attention to details; it is an activity, which requires precision and diligence.
The new Paola Lenti rugs originate from a personal and contemporary interpretation by Marella Ferrera of this ancient technique, which once was used to create the trousseaux of noble girls, the precious objects, intended to be handed down from one generation to the next. The result is a rug full of colour and decoration, complex, yet gracefully elegant. Truman Capote.
Il colore influenza il nostro umore e la nostra vita, nasce dai viaggi immaginari e fantastici della memoria attraverso il tempo. Colours influence our behavior and our lives; they germinate from imaginary and fantasy voyages of our minds throughout time itself. The study of colours is a strength that makes Paola Lenti projects unique. To the existing thousands of hues already in the collection, today we add Shades of White: greens, whites, pinks and light blues, which are luminous, almost imperceptible tones, and yet are vibrating with subtle, substantial differences.
Available for all outdoor textiles, the new pastel colours remind us the lightness of the air and the transparency of the morning light. Andrea Camilleri. This was real friendship, Sicilian friendship, the kind based on intuition, on what was left unsaid. With a true friend, one never needs to ask, because the other understands on his own and acts accordingly. The attention to new materials and the characteristics that make them different and unique has always played an important role in the research activities of the Company.
Lava is resistant, long-lasting and does not require particular care. With little squared tiles, which necessarily are never equal to one another, coloured chessboards are created, each time different, in a play of plenums and voids, as if they were cords and fabrics. Viviamo in una rete di arabeschi. Ennio Flaiano […] Countries much smaller and more important than ours have their own single version of the truth; but we have an infinite number.
We live in an arabesque network. Prendendo spunto dai colori della natura, Paola Lenti ottiene dal metallo effetti inediti che ne ammorbidiscono il ruolo strutturale e danno alle superfici un aspetto diverso. Inspired by the colours of nature, Paola Lenti has modified metals with new distinctive effects by smoothing their structural role and by giving the surfaces unprecedented new appearances. Once again, experimentation through colour has allowed Paola Lenti to integrate these particular finishings into the collections, and reinforces the Company focus in the enhancement of its personal and distinct style.
Pane cunzato gr. Pane cunzato 3,5 oz of sliced stale bread 1,7 oz of tomatoes Pachino Basil Oregano Olive oil Pepper and salt In a bowl, shred the bread and add the tomatoes cut in little pieces, oil, oregano, basil, pepper and salt. The art of ceramics is an antique process, which models and hardens clay, the first material used by mankind to produce objects that have since their origin combined functionality with decor.
The division and recomposition of these tops lead to surfaces, which are different each time and yet transform the traditional decorations in contemporary patterns. Il grande Sole non vede forse dal cielo tutte le cose di questo mondo? Eppure ha un occhio solo. Does great Sol not see all this from the sky?
