Vacanza in casa
Go on Holidays … at Home
From Cape Town to Marrakech, Vancouver to Moscow and more, people were required to stay indoors in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As many turned their households into impromptu workplaces, we were left wondering: how would you go on vacation within the narrow confines of your home? That question led ZAINA and Vacanza Studio to launch a non-profit, creative initiative named Vacanza in casa, challenging a selected group of photographers who experienced lockdown from all corners of the world to grab their camera and go on holidays … at home. From their own living rooms, windows, and rooftops, they captured images that seem to encapsulate a unique and extraordinary moment in time.
Each photograph is printed on a postcard that describes where and when the picture was taken, along with a caption written by its author. Every photographer received copies of their postcard so they could share them with others as a souvenir of their unusual holidays. A complete set including the fifteen postcards of Vacanza in casa is presented in a bespoke case featuring foil stamped and blind embossed details. The illustration depicts a romantic horizon whilst its bottom counterpart appears in the shape of a virus, acting as a distorted reflection of the sunset and expressing a sense of duality. The choice of contrasting materials and textures finds a balance in the combination of high gloss, varnished papers and uncoated boards with natural, tactile surfaces.
