In this number: the first stop brings us to church vestments; the 18th and 19th century vestments of S. Pietro di Rovereto and two chasubles, a cope and a mitre created recently in Cremona by two artists, one wielding a needle, the other a brush. We follow this with a trip through the history of Chinese carpets, from their origins to the twentieth century, a quick visit to Valsesia to learn about scapin (the traditional footwear of the region), and then on to two restoration workshops for an illustration of the conservation problems posed by two XVIII century tapestries and two XIX century painted canvases. After a glance at Fiber Art we take you to Paris for an exhibition full of stunning examples of how artists use woven fabrics as a form of expression, then back to Italy and Silvia Beccaria, who returns to show us her experiments with materials and the conquest of space.
