Crumpled, thrown away and found again in a pocket, glued in a diary, kept in drawers.
Tram tickets gain added value thanks to a carpet which celebrates the importance of public transport and its symbolic importance connected to emancipation, especially of women to whom was given the possibility of leaving their strict homes. Thanks to their distribution, many people were able to return to urban places from which they had been kept away from. In Turin and Milan trams are in the historical memory of everyone, being an essential part of city life. The design of these carpets is a reproduction of tickets used in these two northern cities during the 50s.
These modern and pop carpets elegantly show the strength and vitality of these cities right in the middle of our living room.
