Vale­ria Fran­cione, a girl­friend of mine who’s a fash­ion and inte­rior designer based inMilan, has come up with the ulti­mate travel sou­venir. She takes some appar­ently tri­fling token of your trip — a lug­gage tag or board­ing pass, a museum, con­cert or tram ticket, what­ever brings back mem­o­ries — and turns it into a mini work of art with acrylic and oil paints on a small canvas.
Hang it, col­lect more, and you could soon have a wall of keep­sakes from your travels, unique and per­son­alised: Valeria’s art en voy­age. To order them, con­tact Vale­ria on her blog or on face­book, or send her an email.
The blank can­vases — and indeed ready-made ones you can buy even in advance of your trip — can be found at all the right stores in Milan like 10 Corso ComoExcel­siorand the Armani book­store in Via Man­zoni 31, pack­aged up with another of Valeria’s great ideas, city colours. These are mini city guides fea­tur­ing her own pho­tos of the best in archi­tec­ture, art, design, fash­ion, food and well­ness, so far avail­able for Lon­don, Paris and Milan. €15 for a guide plus blank can­vas, €20 with a ready-made sou­venir canvas.
