The Galleria Asia Occidentale in Via Maggio 45r, in cooperation with the Associazione Via Maggio, features a collection of antique and vintage Ryiji, a selection which is partly new. The most archaic Ryiji, dating back to the fifteenth-century were sometimes blankets used by fishermen and sailors, at other times precious wedding blankets. The motifs and the colours embody the whole popular culture disclosing a lot of beliefs. Ryiji are therefore the core of the North-European textile art that in the twentieth century was recovered by many Finnish designers in order to create contemporary collections. Opening: Friday 6th May from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Opening hours: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

Location:Galleria ASIAOCCIDENTALE- Via Maggio 45r
