Place – Material – Object  is a project through which I communicate coastal atmospheres and cultural background of my homeland, 
Elba, third biggest Italian Island and first of the Tuscan Arcipelago.
Based on psychological theories of 'Place Identity' and 'Place Attachment' form and and materials portray my interpretation of the Island. Inspired by past and current local production of traditional products, forms seek its history and traditions. Material inclusions collected directly from the location, colour palette and organic features, portray the translation of the landscape and atmosphere my home transmits to me.
