The figure of the embroidery artist from Narni, Elena Marchegiani Matticari, represents a fundamental part of the textile culture for the XX century in the region of Umbria. Her self-taught formation linked to her extremely high capacity with line and perspective and to her mastery in working on her "mission" as embroiderer, makes the mergence between art and crafts perceptible. Across the simplicity of cotton thread and the expressive richness of the artifact, she has managed to retrace the modernity and the color of the Impressionist and futurist painting of the 1900s with her needles and threads. The works that will be exhibited belong totally to private collectors and represent an artistic experience that lies outside the circuits and interests of criticism, but rich in signs, techniques and values, which together hand down a living heritage of culture and sensitivity.
