Carolina Cenerini has worked for the United Nations for over 13 years on gender equality related issues in Africa and Latin America.
Over these years, she met many women who produced handicrafts representing culture and values.
Her desire was to support them and collect those objects they created with love and dedication.
These objects were testimony of another world that existed in parallel to ‘ours’ only further South.
After living in different countries, she settled in Panama where she created DESDE EL SUR CON AMOR project. She continues to travel to Mexico, Peru and Colombia where she collaborates with talented artisans creating unique pieces steeped in history, traditions and culture.
“Life has taken me many times towards the South. Towards the South I have felt my heart beating faster”
Desde el sur con amor
Born from the idea of establishing a connection with the global South of the world, in particular Latin America, through the skill of artisan women who create unique objects with their hands, imprinting them with symbolic and historical values of the local culture. Handicrafts move and tell community traditions and heritage.
