The movement developed in Britain as a decorative technique at the end of '800 inspired by the beauty of the cards used for the packaging of tea from the Far East of this vast empire, became transformed during the first half of the last century in philosophy. It encompassed all the arts sweeping through Europe with names and different aspects in each country. In Turin, the development of this philosophy is realized through the widespread dissemination in the field of architecture and urban planning that make the city an excellent example of the Liberty style.

Six artists of the project: Erika Dardano, Jessica Dardano, Chiara Miola, Danilo Monateri and Greta Staltari, all talented young people professionally involved in the art world who have their studios in Turin, for years considered one of the capitals of contemporary art.
