the installation, offers a look at COTTO’s latest collection of the same name, offering a state of being whereby ‘a person is rid of all the stresses in life, the soul is free of clutter, and the mind is fully able to grasp the truth.’ COTTO explains its design intentions for ‘il momento della verità’: ‘tranquility is a universal concept sought after by people from all walks of life. meditation is the road that leads to inner peace and serenity. by cleansing the mind, body and soul of earthly troubles, one can then see the truth of life.’
