A project by Dafne Salis, for the residency at

Cittadellarte Fondazione Michelangelo Pistoletto.



My name is Dafne and I am an artist. Since I became a mother, I discovered the beauty of care.


Every day in our homes we perform gestures of love which remain in the secret of our houses. The artistic project I would like you to be part of, wants to make visible those gestures outside domestic walls.

Your collaboration is precious: chose an object you use daily to show affection to your loved one. With the photo of that object and the story of how that object is used, I will create postcards. These, instead of representing our territory through monuments and landscapes, will represent it through the beauty of what happens in our houses.


I chose postcards, not only because historically they are images of the beauty of our places, but also because they are an excellent tool to make people feel their closeness from home to home.


The postcard will be delivered to you free of charge. It will be yours and you can send it to whoever you want!

To participate, follow these simple steps:

  1. Choose an object that represents the daily care for your loved one/s. What you want.

  2. Take a picture with your mobile and upload it by opening this link.

  3. Fill out the form

  4. Wait for your postcard to be delivered at your preferred address.

  5. Send it to whoever you like!

Thank you so much!          Dafne

Grazie ancora!
