If you don’t speak Italian I have to tell you that Pigotta means something like ‘doll’. Pigotta was originally made of rags, but some years ago Unicef started selling Pigotte made of fabrics and yarn in order to raise money for its social projects (you can find some further information here).
Last December some 11 young italian crafters reinvented their own Pigotta following their personal creativity: they have been displayed in Bologna at the Unicef headquarters and they have been all sold by charity auction. The funds will help Unicef’s current campaign ‘Vogliamo Zero’ against the childhood death rate.
