RUGGLI Series 4: Legacy | Design 2 of 3
In Italian: “Brucia il tuo vecchio tappeto di merda” — B. Averriscerdo
Childhood friend and long time Ruggliotti Worldwide scout (and 100% made-up character), Bruno Averriscerdo, would travel the world with Massimilano, visiting living rooms and observing local rug making techniques and design sensibilities.
Location after location would enrage Bruno more and more. “Boring, lifeless, a detriment to one’s existence,” Bruno would comment. Nothing lived up to his militaristically high standards.
He famously yelled “Burn your sh*tty old rug!” at a 14 year old apprentice ruggateer at a rural Rugmaking Fair in Finland. A completely unwarranted verbal assault on a child, but it showed the passion one can have of the craft.
Sadly (or not), Bruno died of a heart attack in the days that followed.
It was important for Massimiliano to commemorate the essence of Bruno’s militaristic mentality towards rugmaking, hence assuming the title Creativo Generalissimo.
Rest in peace you Bruno, you crazy b*stard (can you rest in peace if you were never born in the first place?).
Our Founder and Creativo Generalissimo (not a real role), Massimiliano Ruggliotti (not a real person) has lived an astonishing life. This series of focusses on three quotes that form the enduring philosophy of our Master Ruggateer (not a real qualification).

All RUGGLI wall art is Giclée printed using genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks on heavyweight 260gsm European matte stock for a smooth texture and crisp presentation. This is an archival, museum-quality fine art print that won't fade over time.
Prints that are purchased in a frame are mounted to a rigid foamcore board before framing for longterm stability. Frameless purchases are supplied as paper only.
All of our wall art pieces are professionally framed by hand in Melbourne, Australia.
Frames for A4, A3 and A2 have a 20mm face and 20mm depth.
Frames for A1 and A0 have a 30mm face and 20mm depth.
Our Natural Oak frames are made of raw Tasmanian oak, which will have subtle differences from frame to frame. The Black and White frames are made from imported timber, and present with a consistent painted finish.
A4 and A3 size are fitted with a glass cover. Our larger sizes, A2, A1, and A0, use premium acrylic which helps to protect the artwork from UV damage, is lighter in weight for easier relocation, and is shatter proof. Both glazing options offer crystal clear transparency.
All frames are ready to hang with a rigid string attached to the back.
All framed prints are protected with bubble wrap and safely shipped within a box labelled fragile.

🇦🇺 ORGOGLIOSAMENTE AUSTRALIANA
Though our (fictional) Founder, Massimiliano 🥸 was born in Italia, he proudly calls Australia home. We design, print and frame in Melbourne. Fantasico.
★★★★★ WE WERE BLOWN AWAY
The images on the website don't do the true quality of the product justice. We bought an A1 print from the Mess series and we were blown away with it. From the vibrant colours to the print quality, it has all the traits of a premium product. Highly recommend RUGGLI if you're looking for a statement piece for your home.
