GREEN IS GOLD - PUBLIC PROJECT
‘green is gold’ is a phrase summarising the new approach to environment actuated by Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, in the 13th five-years plan for economic and social development (2016-2020).
‘green is gold’ is a series of works made juxtaposing gilding and hundreds of plastic debris donated by the passers-by, as food wrappings used for mono portion snacks, handkerchief's wrappings or candies wrappings.
PP5 or Polypropylene overtakes human life cycle, taking decades to degradate. ‘green’ is the result of the everyday choices by producers and consumers, also by me and you.

Starting from the Milan Design Week Friday, 10 public 'Green Is Gold' will be done in Piazza della Scala, Milan on the occasion of the weekly strikes of the #FridaysforFuture movement.
