ROSA ALCHEMICO 

 31th MINIARTEXTIL COMO

October 16 2022 – January 8 2023
Opening October 15 
Villa Olmo, Via Cantoni 1 – Como

The Italian event dedicated to international fiber art is back with a major exhibition weaving together established artists and young talents in the name of freedom and cultural exchange.
The judges have already chosen the 54 mini-textiles out of the 234 projects from around the world.
The choice of the title Rosa Alchemico (Alchemical Rose) stems from the desire to give life to new forms of positivity and energy. The pink colour peacefully conveys an idea of freedom which, combined with the ever-present concept of alchemy, of mixing, appears to be the perfect combination to unleash new ideas.
