As battisti sings in one of his songs "sii, viaggiare", which translated means “yes, to travel”, he means traveling as a moment for oneself to find one's own rhythm of life flowing in the heart. In particular, the train, with its time that seems suspended and its inconveniences of space, puts on the disused curiosity for details, refines the attention for what is around us, for what flows out of the window. As i am used to taking the train often to go to university or go out with friends, it made me think that life is the train, and not the train station.
My dad, an air force soldier is forced to move from northern italy to his homeland to see his girlfriend, my mom, a student and ballet dancer. With this collection i wanted to combine the two worlds in clothing: the military and the world of ballet, the male with the female and transported in the context of travel.
Here past and present flow on two parallel tracks and the station instead becomes a significant place, a meeting point for this distant love between two young lovers and a point of departure, change or arrival for me.
