Nino Garden Gnome

The Nino project has just been launched, thanks to the collaboration between the Roman company Plato Design and the designer Pellegrino Cucciniello. The project investigates, with a touch of irony, how language and imagery can overturn the perception of a kitsch icon, the garden gnome, giving it a new and well-deserved dignity.
