This book, which accompanies the exhibition at the Museo Nazionale delle Arti e delle Tradizioni Popolari in Rome, is a comprehensive anthology of the best of Italian Fiber Art production, an artistic movement that chooses ancient and modern fibres as its means of expression: wools, silks, cottons, synthetic yarns, as well as paper, straw, twine, metallic and plastic fibres, fibreglass and so on, even arriving at the immaterial concept of fibre optic. An artistic phenomenon which stands out for its originality and the genuine boldness of its research but which, at the same time, compares itself, respectfully, with ancient methods, with the savoir faire.
