The Prize

"At Cinecittà, in the 70s or 80s, during my time as an actor, costume designer and props master, I found this plaster disk depicting an archer in a warehouse, asked if I could have it, and the warehouse manager gave it to me in exchange for a job that I had done. It had been used for a period film, and the other disks were in pieces, so he was happy to give me the only remaining disk. This is how I started my collection of archers". Alviero Martini

Alviero Martini was born in Cuneo on March 13, 1950, where he completed his artistic studies and soon began to travel while working as a window dresser. In 1987, his search for "something unique" led him a date with destiny . In Moscow he found a fascinating and faded old map. He glued it onto an old suitcase and thus he stumbled upon the idea to create an innovative line of baggage embellished with geographic maps. 1990 marks a successful year across the globe. Recognized as the creator of a new travel concept, he rapidly became well known as the 'traveling stylist'.
