Since our throwaway culture has created a world cluttered with things, it is essential that objects surrounding us possess a narrative dimension, so that traces of what is created and produced remain. To avoid that artifacts and events are just meteors worthy of a mere passing glance, it is necessary that they tell a story. These stories are evidence of skills, traditions and cultures. They narrate an original and creative journey that from the very idea produces unusual representations, able to amaze us. These are the stories that through ordinary and extraordinary things, create meaningful connections between us and the material world.
