Mario Trimarchi per De Castelli SAMOTRACIA disegno inchiostro su carta 2018
For the Samotracia project, it looks like you gave your take about the passing of time …
I like to imagine that an object can last a hundred of years. The copper oxidizes slowly and becomes green with time. I like the idea that, instead of buying a new motorbike every five to six years, I can buy just one and see how it ages over time.

I also like the idea that cars and motorbikes can grow old gracefully as a consequence of the architectural rhythms of the city rather than the industrial mass production effects.
