Melancholy full of thoughts, childhood memories, summer serenity: a maritime atmosphere that anyone has experienced in his life, at least once. And now, years and years later, remember it with a smile. Federico Cina presented the new collection inspired by the photographic book “Addio Colonia” by Luigi Tazzari, a photographer based in the Romagna region. “Infanzia A-mare” takes as its basis an intimate and personal wish for remembering the designer’s childhood spent by Romagna seaside and its summer camps, now abandoned. With this collection, Federico Cina wants to promote the beauty of Romagna heritage that today is risking to be forgotten.

“I remember the days spent at the seaside when I was a child. My Romagna was also the smell of sun cream, the salty air and the Garbino that gently caressed my shoulders. The minibus used to pick me up at dawn and then drive through the countryside to finally reach the sea. I remember the walls inside the summer camps that used to tell stories of romance and friendships suspended between the past and an eternally present time.”
