Discover the textile work of Allegra Hicks with an exhibition of bespoke works set within the framework of the 1830s architecture of the Italian Cultural Institute.

The starting point for Allegra’s pieces is the idea of a continuous drawing, consisting of repetitions and juxtapositions of both natural and abstract motifs.

In Allegra’s own words, ‘Rugs and textiles are not like paintings; they have a very specific function and evoke a different perspective space, which changes following the graphic arrangement and the colours. Rugs, for instance, are supposed to give a sense of continuity, to create an island for the furniture, anchoring them to the ground.’
