Ugo La Pietra defines the private space as an expression of the personality of the people who live there and possess it not only physically but mentally too. In his words, “Conceptuality and the spectacular are components that we find in the private space, where affections, memories and passions are everyday emotions that govern our mental space and where all domestic objects rise systematically thanks to the continuous quest of the individual or group to reconstruct their own world”. Intrigued by these affections, memories and passions, we decided to dedicate this is- sue of Alla Carta to the home and living, therefore revealing the practices of the private space. We reflect on the relationship between private and public, home and work, family space and community space. To use his words once more, “we break down the barrier between public and private by creating beneficial conflicts between these two worlds”. The issue features breakfast with architect Umberto Riva, lunch with artist Diego Perrone, dinner with fashion designer Matthew Adams Dolan, SS19 collections and much more.
