FATTOBENE – Italian Everyday Archetypes is an atlas of Italian material culture, a walk in history, beauty and style, along with the products which we grew up with.
The project, born in 2015 by an idea of Anna Lagorio (journalist) and Alex Carnevali (photographer), aims to tell Italy in a fresh and contemporary way to create an archive of everyday archetypals.
There are objects that live in Italians’ houses since ever: they are minute, silent, but with an irresistible charm. Over the years, their role has changed and from simple industrial products they have become true icons of everyday life.
The volume features archival material – often unpublished – made of photographs, postcards, prototypes and advertising posters that tell anecdotes, stories and curiosities about our best made in Italy.
It comes with 4 different covers, you’ll receive the one we have available at the moment.
