Energitismo Insight

The name AMaViS comes from the initials of its creator, Ada Maria Vittoria Santarelli, but also from the two words AMa-ViS symbolizing "love" and "strength". Amavis is an intriguing and elegant stylist committed to sustainability who creates elegant and high fashion garments using unusual objects and materials. Some might call it "recycling", but this name is often associated with little creations refined and without class, while the clothes or accessories that Ada (Mavi) creates Ada a personality and are cared for in every detail. For example, the plastic bottles can become jewelry to wear with handmade leather finishes. The AMaViS slogan of "give me a second chance" emphasizes the prospect of a new identity that could be even better than the first! The materials that are used are of various types: plastic bottles, seat belts, car seat covers, flawed sheets, leftover fabric upholstery, tailoring clippings, inner tubes, strapping for packs and more than you can conceive.

ADA SANTARELLI

The passion to create clothes and to sew arose when Ada was playing with dolls. Then, at 13 she began to experiment using everything he could recover: bags of linen, parachutes or old pants of her grandfather.

Ada has always wanted to devote herself entirely to fashion and began working as a model, then as a manager and finally the decisive step to become a stylist and create her own exclusive sustainable line: AMaViS

Location

Italy, GenzanoFIND IT HERE

Genzano is a typical town of the Castelli, along Lake Nemi, historically part of the Papal States and therefore governed by different important papal families.

But is internationally known for its "infiorata", 2000 square meters of drawings made from flower petals during the feast of Corpus Christi. The festival dates back to 1778, but the custom of using flowers to adorn the streets arose much earlier.

The tradition began in Rome, in the Baroque period when the Vatican florists prepared floral paintings on the floors of St. Peter on the day of St. Peter and Paul. Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the great architect, sculptor and also organizer of lavish parties, created some.

From Rome this custom moved Genzano and today it is the most impressive example of this artistic expression, spreading across an area of 2000 square meters along the Via Belardi.
