Tartarugo is part of a family of objects that could be called “seeking lost space”.
It’s a multi-function container for any type of use, designed to satisfy any need. Tartarugo answers the need of “general storage”, which gives the user the possibility to use it as they like it better, storing it as preferred.
From this point of view, Tartarugo is a “mimetic” object: invisible as it gets the colour of the place it is stored in, or visible, just when it’s desired to.
