Carteggio is a vertical secrétaire, a sort of double of the human figure. It invites a “man to man” comparison but will docilely reveal its secrets. Its internal, catalogue- or list-like layout implies a passion for classification. The chest of deep and shallow drawers, the desk compartment protected by a double door and the pull-out desktop for sorting papers and documents suggest secrecy and intimacy.

In England this item of furniture is called a chest of drawers. When furniture keeps mounting up, what else can you do but add box to box?
