Abstract or Description:

Issue 2 of PROVA: the annual RCA Humanities Research Forum Journal.

The words ‘trial’, ‘attempt’ and ‘rehearsal’ are all definitions of the Italian word prova. In the language of bespoke shoemaking, the prova is the primary model around which leather and heel are moulded to make the shoe. Prova is a first, it was the first, and now it is also the second. If the first issue of the Prova Journal was a giro di prova (a test or trial run), and in prova (on probation), this second issue represents another attempt, fino a prova contraria (until [it is] proven otherwise).
