The program is directed and produced by Antonio Ricci and is hosted by two major comedians. The name of the show literally translates in English as “the news slither”.

Waves by Zerobarracento is a really simple and linear outfit inspired by the shades and shapes of the sea. Moreover, patterns are developed with zero-waste techniques that eliminate textile waste at the design stage. The topic of water is not just represented by the “wavy” decoration of the jacket or by the blue colour: behind the outfit there is a deep research on “saving water” materials. All the selected materials are ends end of rolls, this means virgin materials that are usually wasted with a huge loss of values. Small quantities of materials can’t represent an option for usual weavers’ costumers, as for fashion and furnishing brands, but for small design companies, they can be a perfect option!
