Our story

Duecitti is a creative firm dedicated to celebrating the beauties and uniqueness of Liguria.

Starting from a continuous seek for stories and typical aesthetics throughout the territory, the brand aims to create small series of objects in limited editions and unique pieces to enhance traditions and evolutions of Ligurian heritage, adapting them to the tendency of the contemporary arts.

Capturing the emotional traces and the expressive potential that local icons have to offer, we want to generate dynamics of interaction and contamination between the ancient and the more recent disciplines that become the means to translate Ligurian roots in expressions of our time, objects not only functional but also significant, involving people beyond the practical function.

Duecitti was founded in 2017 by the architect/designer Luca Cipollina and economist-turned art collector Alice Perfumo with the common goal of opening new perspectives for local crafts.

Statement

Duecitti practice to conveying forms and stories in minimal works, objects marked by contemporary tones and evocative flair, combining the best local craftsmanship with the historical and cultural identity of the territory to which they belong.
