I think of myself as a privileged person – says Lucia Caponi – because I’ve had the chance to grow in a context poor in money but rich in ideas, where people were weighted by what they were and not by their looks. Our house was visited by personalities that shaped the culture of the ‘900s. It has been a huge privilege for me to get to know them, speak to them and especially listen to them, even if I was just a bit more than a child.

The laboratory was a world full of stimulating relations, where you would learn something different every day through the conversations of the outside workers. Talks about their lives, their expectations and what they no longer expected. Little by little I conquered my spaces and started to bring to life my ideas, keeping in mind what my mother kept telling me through the years: “Every job should not be made following the easier path, but through the one that takes to the best results”.
