Piccolo Formato, Genoa 1991, was the first mini-textile exhibition held in Italy, from which Miniartextil, Como, was born on the same year. I took part in it with Diagonale 1. In the present exhibition, whose title looks back at the old one, we exhibit works then on show and new works. This colourful forest grew from a well-known craft for children and a basket of balls of thick carpet wool given to me by my friend Roberta.
