Cinema Bianchini -series of leather letter accessories 2015.
Eralio Bianchini was a tanner in Turbigo in Northern Italy from the early 60’s until the late 80’s. Grandson Dylan inherited the abandoned tannery and called it Cinema Bianchini.
The name derives from an Italian saying; “Andare al Cinema Bianchini, sotto le coperte e sopra I cuscini”. Going to Cinema Bianchini, under the blankets and on the pillows. It’s a way of saying which means that you’re going to bed, to sleep, to dream. The saying originates from the times that going to the cinema was a privilege for the rich. Cinema Bianchini was the show the poor could afford, the free show of their own dreams.
Tuula Pöyhönen visited Cinema Bianchini and carried out the series of leather letter accessories.
