Monica  Bolzoni’s playful  approach  to  dress is characterized by an extensive  engagement  with  the  worlds  of  the  performing  arts: Vanessa  Beecroft and  Letizia  Cariello are  just  some  of  the  artists  who  have  collaborated  with  her.

Una scala appesa al cielo consists in a staircase with cable sections of the old Mont Blanc cableway instead of the pegs. The wool weaving re-evokes, moving up and down between the rungs, the movement of the cabins that come and go. The red of the wool, which warms up, means energy: propulsion and heat. But the red threads also materialize a thought that reaches the heights always first, then followed by the body. Line of the spirit, of desire and of aspiration.
