A valet stand: no name was more suitable to describe an use. This involves a humble, clearly functional typology, made to serve more than to represent. In fact, it works to support clothes, to fold shirt and trousers, to prepare the evening before what will be worn the next morning, even the small accessories or jewels that complete the daily wardrobe. However, Solista is a valet stand that has detached itself from the choir. It realized that he had his own personality and that he could sing his solo. It becomes aware that it is not invisible and servile, but also beautiful and worthy of being appreciated when it is undressed. And then – like every good soloist – it knows how to return to the chorus of the domestic landscape and give its silent contribution.
