CASAECHIESA

by Alessandro Damin.

CASAECHIESA is a small marble bookshelf where to put the book you’re reading and storing your next readings.

It is a tribute to the Italy’s history, always divided between temporal and spiritual power, Guelphs and Ghibellines, Communist Party and Christian Democracy,  Peppone and Don Camillo. 
The books define its shape: one for the roof, the others for the bell tower.

CASAECHIESA is going to be presented today, at the 2014 Turin International Book Fair opening, with Holy See as Guest Country. You can find the minibokshelf at Codice Edizioni Stand.

Alessandro Damin, graduated in Eco-Design at the Polytechnic of Turin, is currently running his own studio in Turin , Italy, working on graphic and product design.To know more about CASAECHIESA and Alessandro Damin, please write to info@alessandrodamin.com or officinak@gmail.com.
