Past, Present & Future: m_moriabc by Maurizio Altieri
While reminiscent of concepts explored at Carpe Diem, Maurizio Altieri brings to life an original examination of time with m_moriabc—the project was first presented in 2012. Three separate moments are represented by the letters a, b and c in linear order alluding to the past, present and future—each moment capturing a defined footwear last.
The essence of m_moriabc lies in the notion of looking backwards in order to move forward—a perpetual cycle symbolised by laces which are fused together, to form an infinite loop.
Altieri is a master of reinterpretation and innovation, transforming traditional cordwaining materials and tanning techniques to create genuine and beautiful pieces that accompany their wearers for a lifetime and more.
