From the collaboration of Milo Manara with the great Federico Fellini, which began thanks to the intuition of a mutual friend, the journalist Vincenzo Mollica (not surprisingly a great expert in both cinema and comics), various stories and scripts were born.
In addition to having created the posters for the last films of the great director, Manara drew some stories, based on a screenplay by Fellini. The collaboration did not last long, only for a misunderstanding, but the designer continued to create some tables related to the Maestro. From the comics and drawings, 3D prints on velvet have been made, a technique that allows to maintain the absolute fidelity of the colors of the originals. With these prints, The Second Skin of Things has created a unique and precious collection of seats.
A pair of ancient seats, revisited by the Second Skin of Things. The fabrics by Gio Ponti for the backrest, the original Vienna straw and above all the color of the structure amaze with an immediate eye-catching effect. To make the mood even more spectacular, are the 3D reproductions on the velvet of the cushions, which faithfully reproduce four tables by Maestro Manara.
A tribute to Fellini, a must-have for those who love beauty tout-court.
The collaboration with maestro Fellini: a dream pursued by Manara for years. The designer has always recognized the great Federico as his main inspiration. In the scripts conceived together there are several tables dedicated to one of the sacred monsters to which the director has dedicated an important film: Casanova. Particularly attracted to the representation of the female body, both Fellini and Manara found in the famous Venetian seducer an ideal interpreter to make a journey into the universe of Woman. With refined audacity, traversed by a subtle modesty, some tables dedicated to Giacomo Casanova were thus included in the complex story that the two masters wrote and created together. The tables, characterized by pastel colors, were printed on cushions made by The second skin of things. The drawings faithfully quote the scenes from the colossal film dedicated by Fellini to Casanova.
