Memories Are Staying | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

I am restless, I have been restless, I have been dreaming of a new reality, until one day I realized my discontent is about desiring to move away and across the pond again. I want to return to my roots and not necessarily to my native town. If I can put myself somewhere back in Europe I will be happy. So far, the choice seems to be the Provence region, in France, but I wouldn’t mind one of the sunny islands in Italy like the colorful Procida on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

This picture is a painting, but pretty much resembles my dream village.

This is the island of Procida, a fisherman island, sunny, colorful, and peaceful.

I am searching for a good looking home that has the features I like: curves, arches, stone and wood, rustic material, wrought iron, Persiana shutters on the windows, antique latches, historical details, and a small piece of raw land to cultivate my food and fruit trees, all the details I could never have living in the United States. Here builders like to produce boxy, square homes, with mostly modern details. History and historical details here are frowned upon and basically end up dismantled on the ground 😡🙈.

Thinking of the day I will be moving, I have started to prepare myself. Every day, my big task is to eliminate all the stuff I don’t want to travel overseas as the extra weight and I am been so brutal with everything, even my personal life has been under heavy scrutiny, photos, video, music, books, clothes and more.

Today, I found these beautiful hand sketches made by Odette Nicoletti. They are costumes made for theatre representations, comedies, and dramas.

Sketches by Odette Nicoletti

I remember the event organized at Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, Italy, where these sketches were presented.
I attended that very interesting exhibition, I met theatre costume designers and many people in the trade of theatre entertainment. I felt above clouds being part of that environment of creative people.
Later, I received these prints, I don’t remember who it was. Someone must have liked me. The amount of details is incredible. I kept them for a project I had in mind.

This is a room divider I found on Grandinroad. In place of the mirrors, I wanted to insert the prints. I wanted to honor the designer of these theatre costumes by making a room divider for my living room and I never got to it. Maybe, I will do it this time around.

Living in one place for a long time, we don’t realize how much we accumulate, whether I keep my memories in paper and visual material, they will still be in my mind. The important thing is to keep on editing. Ciao,

    Wow, you’re beautiful post hit home Valentina. I too am dreaming of living somewhere warm near the ocean, and I too have begun my decluttering process, readying for the day. 🙂 We have to move our dreams forward. 🙂 x
