About Marina

Amo i rutamat, i mercatini, le ferramenta, l’arte povera, la funzionalità. Amo il passato per la sua tradizione e il futuro per l’innovazione. Amo le fibre, i tessuti, i colori, la materia grezza, il glitter e le decorazioni. Amo la qualità, la profondità, l’autenticità dentro e fuori. Amo osservare la natura. Amo respirare, cantare, ballare, ridere, piangere, camminare, mangiare, bere e fare l’amore. Mi piace stare con gli amici, ospitare, essere ospitata, viaggiare. Mi piace stare da sola, isolarmi e meditare. Mi piacciono gli opposti. Mi piacciono le metafore. Non mi piacciono: i posti finti, i luoghi affollati, le persone non vere, il traffico, i locali alla moda, le cose che vanno di moda, la coerenza, il perbenismo, le formalità…
