Abstract or Description:

Communication project for the "La Muta del III Millennio" award. On the occasion of the restoration of the work by Raphael, events were organized involving the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino and the Royal College of Art in London.
An identity built on the direct relationship with the work of art by Raphael: the underlining of the enigma, the creation of a single sign of which the word / title belongs. A line that stretches and acts as a visual guiding thread .

Z. Broach: 'The dress of a woman. What does this mean? Maybe with fashion it never means anything until we look back. The surface, the last to be allowed to have any depth. It is the frustration of fashion that the production of design forgets us to ask of the absolute power and value there is, in how we dress. And then how we record ourselves a very present obsession of self, the world has absorbed finitely into its collective skin. Letting go under the skin, under the dress, what is the dress? What did she wear and why? Are we leaving odd clues and codes for the future archaeology of our present, their past… & that sexual connection in being recorded, knowing who is recording you, fake flirtatious action, new worlds of beauty, new tensions presenting how she wants to be? Dark dark darkly she sits forever waiting. Little did she know she was waiting until today when she would be reproduced in expressions of another time.'
