The rosary Peregrino began as a sacred object to be used during pilgrimages. A pilgrimage is a journey undertaken for devotion, penance or spiritual quest to a place considered sacred. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is the path along which, since the Middle Ages, pilgrims undertake through France and Spain, to come to the shrine of Santiago de Compostela. Since the early nineties there has been a strong revival of attendance of the Way, even by people who cross it for irreligious reasons. The Scallop, or shell of St. Giacomo, is the symbol of the pilgrimage. The pilgrims over the centuries has always collected shells on the beaches of Galicia to Santiago de Compostela. Hence, the shell shape of the rosary Peregrino, designed to facilitate prayer during these long journeys. The box, in fact, attached to a belt, is easily transportable and ready to be used. The rosary is extended as the prayer advances to conclude with the Hail Holy Queen, which corresponds symbolically to the "shell" itself. After the prayer, the rosary with a simple click retracts automatically into the box and is ready for a new meditation. This project took part in the exhibition AVEAMEN-DESIGN PER LO SPIRITO. “Design per lo spirito” is a project made by LARCA s.r.l. which is a factory that produced rosaries based in Italy. The Peregrino has been designed on 2012 and it has been part of the Biennale di Venezia, exposition of Art, Design, Architecture, Cinema and Theater. Read Less
