According Michele De Lucchi, editor-in-chief from DOMUS- Italy, has Poverty a meaning full connotatie in design:

Poverty is an extraordinary source of inspiration. It is an adversity, but it can turn into riches. Destitution, instead, offers no hope. It takes root physically and mentally and it only generates more destitution. Poverty can be invoked and become a choice. It has a great strength, because it spurns the superfluous. It separates the necessary from the useless, and it rejects excess, effrontery and luxury.”
