From paper to postcard
Memories of Amalfi

‘From paper to postcard‘ is a project carried out by Kaos Produzioni for the former paper mill ‘Cavaliere di Amalfi’. It is a journey through memory and through the traditions of the ancient city of Amalfi; a place whose history survives also thanks to the many travelers and the passers-by and their tales handed down during centuries. Karl Schinkel, M. C. Escher, D. H. Lawrence, or the playwriter Henrik Ibsen just to name a few.

The postcard in itself is a witness of these journeys both as an instrument of communication, linking images to the words, and as an object, being made of the very material whose processing and trade was Amalfi’s best kept secret and tradition since the ancient times: Paper. Every postcard has its own story to tell. The visitor experiences each story both through images and videos and through sounds and words: The old Amalfi comes to life again in our space quickly turning into the modern one in a an going dialogue between old and modern: The ancient memoir conveyed through modern-multi media language.

The “Scuderia del Duca”

The “Scuderia Del Duca” is a workshop and a store run, since 1980, by Andrea De Luca and Giovanna Fusco. It has been described as a “Wonderland”; a place where the precious Amalfi’s paper with its deckled edges is the main attraction. The store also offers a bookbindery service, manufacturing books both in leather and in paper. Thanks to dedication, passion, and creativity in finding objects, the Scuderia is considered to be a wonder-room of the treasures of the past.

Sweet the memory is to me of a land beyond the sea, where the waves and mountains meet; Where amid her mulberry-trees sits Amalfi in the heat, bathing ever her white feet in the tideless, summer seas.

Lieber Ullrich Neufahr. Alles Gute… Schöne zum Osterfest! Wenn kommen Sie wieder nach Italien? Der Frühling ist herzlich hier… Leider wenig Gäste aber sonst geht’s uns gut. Sehr herzliche Grüße von Ihrer Lotte.
