"Cunto di mare" (tale of the sea) is a collection of notebooks dedicated to the sea. The fish are handprinted on the cover, which is made of thick and rugged food-wrapping paper: you'll find swordfish, tuna, octopus, sole or trout. A tale of the sea, from the markets straight to your desk. Each cover is unique.
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 colors 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.
