What does Renaissance mean?
“The Resurgence of the Waters” is a term coined by Leon Battista Alberti, a renowned Renaissance architect, when he was commissioned in the fifteenth century to restore the ancient Roman aqueducts. The term “Risurgenza” was later adopted by the French, following the Napoleonic era, and became “Rinascenza”. Over the centuries, this word evolved into “Rinascimento” (Renaissance in Italian). The Rinascenza symbolizes a rediscovery of the past and, in a broader sense, alludes to the concept of emancipation and progress.
That’s why this collection represents, in a sense, a Renaissance expression: it draws inspiration from an ancient concept and revisits it in a contemporary key.
