Souvenir as evidence of memories.
Souvenir as a gift for those who were not there.
Souvenir as a triumph of life experience.

“Souvenir of the last century” is a collection of memories up-cycled into new physical forms.
Nucleo explores materials, experiences and points of references, both fragile, lost and strong.
The memories of the past century have been re-found in discarded materials marked from its era.
Full of scars, the material creates characteristics stronger than when it was new.
The craftsman’s ‘know-how’ is preserved, in contrast to the immediacy of the 3D printing production,
by embedding handmade objects in the resin.
The privilege of donating memories of mastery, valuables of increasingly rare skill.
With “Souvenir of the last century” Nucleo has restored and preserved memories, mummifying fragments from the past,
and mixed it up with the physical presence and the action, of now.
By creating souvenirs of the last century, also souvenirs for the future has become materialized.
