We saw it as a coffee lounge but also as a setting for cosplayers of Star Wars characters.
I wish you wouldn’t miss the Piazza Ducale “covered” version.
Suggestive, isn’t it?
and sunset of a whole day dedicated to sharing.
These beautiful coloured blankets are all made of four knitted or crocheted squares joined together by a red thread as a symbol of relationship and union.
For months, many women worked to make these blankets with multicoloured wool and lots of imagination.
Some alone, like Betty during convalescence, some in groups, like Carola’s mother during the weekly meetings based on chatting, knitting and good things to eat.
And more blankets arrived from all over Italy, answering the call of Viva Vittoria.
Viva Vittoria is a relational work shared by women for women.
Knitting is understood as a metaphor for self-development and conveys a message of awareness: we are the creators of our own existence.
If we are able to bring about change in ourselves, change can also take place in society as a reflection.
The idea of bringing these blankets from moments of aggregation was born in Brescia in 2015 and the proceeds of the sale are used for charitable purposes.
In Vigevano, three thousand blankets were adopted in Piazza Ducale in a few hours, the sum collected will be donated to the association Kore alongside women victims of violence.
