A plate is, by its own nature, a container and it usually contains food.
And food satisfies the senses: sight, smell, touch, taste and satisfies the stomach as well.
Yet, there is a different food, i.e. the one we might define "soul food", reaching us through different paths, namely those of Art, Poetry and Spirituality.
In his project TABULA CALLIOPEA, Fabio Mariotto proposes a plate containing food for the Soul through the fusion of three expressive languages like Design, Art and Literature.
By using the evocative powers typical of these contexts he tries to enrich our sense experiences.
TABULA CALLIOPEA is a sort of "open project" organized through both Fiction and Poetry from which new collections devoted to several authors are being scheduled.

William Shakespeare - Sonnets
Charles Baudelaire - Fleurs du mal - Tableaux parisienne
Gaio Valerio Catullo - Liber
