Lyall Harris and Patricia Silva discussed Patricia’s 2020 pandemic project Before We Forget, hand-bound journals with writing prompts aimed at remembering this unprecedented time. The journals, conceived and developed during the period of strict lockdown in Italy, renewed Silva’s commitment to local Florentine artisans, who have been particularly impacted by the quarantine. In the first months of its release, Before We Forget has already garnered much attention in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America.
