Edizioni Precarie (Precarious Edition) is a project that uses the traditional food-wrapping paper of the markets in Palermo to create notebooks and other objects. This paper has a very special consistency, with its patterns and colours and it gives life to unique objects that tell the story of Palermo's markets, a "precarious" reality which is slowly disappearing.
The disappearance of Sicilian traditions serves as a staring point for a deeper reflection on precariousness as a phenomenon of our time, which touches all.
