Punto antico in Veneto was the fruit of a long and laborious gestation, due to the complexity of the research and the difficulty of the execution carried out with the School. Although in the first section of the book I illustrate a piece of embroidery which was highly acclaimed at the first Italia Invita Forum in 2003, but which I had never explained. The volume contains diagrams and instructions for several projects which combine punto antico with reticello.
The book can also be used as a source of inspiration for personal interpretations of the suggested patterns, not only as an instruction manual for reproducing the projects shown. At this level of skill and knowledge, every embroiderer is capable doing her own thing, taking inspiration wherever she finds most useful.
