Product Description

Umberto Eco describes his University as an ancient institution that is, at the same time, young, because its students bring it to life by taking it outside of the buildings when they discuss their ideas over a drink or while walking under the city’s porticoes.

It is the arrival of students, attracted since 1088 by the famous Studiorum, that led to the construction of Bologna’s famous porticoes: to grant them a Domus, that is, a home, the houses’ upper floors were extended by adding balconies initially supported by wooden beams. It is still possible to see these ancient Medieval porticoes, with the irregular surfaces of their dark wood, while walking along via Mascarella or Strada Maggiore. Over the centuries, the wood turned into stone, becoming the network of covered walkways that connects neighborhoods, shops, and people still today.

We take inspiration from the porticoes of Bologna, which embody so much history and meaning, to present our two new creations of LA DOTTA collection: Domus and Studiorum.

The special, hand-made milling on their surface follows the motifs of the raw wood used for the first porticoes, whereas their colors refer to the contrast between light and darkness that characterizes these structures after sunset. The yellow light of the porticoes contrasts the black sky of the night while offering a safe guide home. Its vivid, artificial color not only illuminates our steps but teases our eyes, drawing geometric shapes through the shadows of those arcades that, slowly, lead us to our destination.
