Story of the collection

The Bella Ciao collection is dedicated to the mondine , seasonal workers who came to work in the rice fields of Piedmont from the end of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th century to pull out weeds and prick the rice. For nearly a century, thousands of Italian women spent several months of the year hunched over doing difficult, intense, and poorly paid work.

Their famous pre-feminist and pre-revolutionary songs inspired masterpieces of Italian neorealist cinema, and their demands transformed the Italian historical landscape.

Bright shades, wild flowers and the insolence of angry youth: the Bella Ciao collection is designed to be colorful, and pays tribute to several generations of women who fought for their rights.

“If eight hours don't seem like much to you, try working them; and you'll feel the difference between toiling and commanding!”

At the center of this motif with its art-deco inspired design, echoes the cry of revolted youth that continues to mark the destiny of Mediterranean workers. The blue of the rice fields, bright and brazen, stands out against the immaculate trousers of the employers of the mondine. Vivaciously interwoven weeds and flowers blossom in this floral coat-of-arms, symbol of strength and witness to a multiplicity of stories which compose each and every woman’s history.

What makes the Azzurro square unique : the depth of its motives and pattern, which pay homage to the protest songs and the political struggle of Italian rice pickers.
