Dagalla Formation 1 Rug
Of Arabic derivation, “Dag allah” literally means “saved by god”. This term is the origin of the Italian word dagala, a word which refers to the islands of vegetation which emerge from the desolate volcanic landscape of solidified lava around Mount Etna.
This was the starting point for Edoardo Piermattei who sees this term as the link between eastern and western cultures, between rug artisans and consumers. Playing with these origins, the artist further transformed the word into Dagallà, seeing the possibility of creating new formations that emerge from the surface of a rug.
Dagallà is a collection of 3 different rugs, Formation 1, Formation 2 and Formation 3 which are presented alongside artworks of the artist created specifically for the cc-tapis showroom.
