Unveiling the Box

Unveiling the Box "Dreams and Chimeras"

This Box brings you a slice of Siena, "city of Dreams and Chimeras" as it is sung in an ancient Sienese stornello and a city with a distinctive medieval spirit.

 As you might know, the Chimera is a fantastic monster from Eastern mythology, later absorbed into Greek mythology, according to which it had three heads, one of a lion, one of a goat and one of a snake, which spewed flames. He also had other depictions, but this is the most common. The Chimera has become a symbol of illusions, strange ambitions, risky fantasies, unrealizable and dangerous dreams. So here is my wish for us all:

Don't let your dreams turn into chimeras.

 

I wish you all the joy of the season.

THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW A DREAM

THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW A DREAM

 What I will tell you today is the story of an artist, a young Italian craftswoman.
I invited Sara for a coffee because I wanted to know her story.
How many people have you met in your life who dared to follow a dream?
I don't know many, but Sara is one of them.
And so, today I also tell you about courage, "coraggio" in Italian, a word derived from Latin, formed by cor, heart, and habeo, to have.
Avere cuore, to have a heart.
One might think that Sara's workshop was born by chance, the randomness of a few events that determined the path of a young artist. Stopping to listen to her instead, I discovered a true story of heart and courage that I would like to share with you.

UNVEILING THE BOX “DOLCE FAR NIENTE”

UNVEILING THE BOX “DOLCE FAR NIENTE”

Today, I’m happy to share the Box n°4 reveal!
 
The truth is, it's not at all easy to find the time to do nothing.
However, if you have received the first Surprise Box of this year, Box No. 4, you will have Italian treasures that will remind you of the importance of taking time for yourself and for the people who are important in your life, to do something with them and to spend time just for the purpose of feeling good, some would say "for the sweetness of doing nothing".

Sculpture is the rigid shaped

Sculpture is the rigid shaped

The intent of My Box from Italy is to tell the story of Italy in a tangible way, through the works of craftspeople who hold within them not only the story of an art but also the story of a territory.
 
Today, I wish to share with you the story of a craftswoman who is intrinsically linked to her territory.

Box n. 4 (the first Box of 2023)

Box n. 4 (the first Box of 2023)

Ciao!
Got a minute to stop?
Let me introduce the theme of this year's first Surprise Box.
Time is a fundamental dimension of everyday life. We cannot see it or touch it but we can unequivocally sense its passage and adapt our behavior accordingly.
What's sure is that it has always been inexorably passing for everyone, and for this very simple reason, it is necessary to try not to waste it on anything in the world, doing, for example, things that do not fulfill us, that do not return any value to our lives.
