The association "Mettiamoci una pezza" from Aquila invites you to enter the Guinness World Record by taking part in achieving the biggest crochet blanket in the world!
The idea is to create a large raspberry blanket and assembly it in Trieste on the 20th of June, in 'Piazza Unità D'Italia' for the Guinness Book of Records "the world's biggest blanket "!!!
The association, since 2009 with Yarn bombing and other forms of art, tries to bring attention to the reality of a city (l'Aquila) devastated by the earthquake and ignored by the institutions. This is why this brave women chose to participate in this event through red patches (the entire city center of Aquila is a 'red zone' where time has stood still).
