the pigotta
The Pigotta

The “pigotta” project was started by Unicef in 1988 to provide the African children with some vital needs like vaccines, medicine, and food to reduce the risk of mortality in their first five years after birth.By donating at least 20 euros you can adopt a “pigotta” made by the volunteers of Unicef.The motto of this project is

“a doll can save a child”.Like other schools our school is also inspired by this donation project of Unicef Italia and created “ pigotte ” all made of recycled materials.

slide24

In the dialect of Lombardy, Pigotta is a traditional handmade rag doll which many generations played with.

“Pigotte” can be produced easily as you need only scissors, a needle, sewing thread, some cotton, and a little creativity. The students can also make it with a little help of their teachers.

Necessary Materials and Equipments :

For body: cotton and self colored elastic clothes (white, pink, brown colors symbolizing the children from all over the world), padding, and kapok (silk cotton)

For dresses: colored clothes, laces, and knitting needles

For hair: colored wool, raffia

Face: pens (which can mark on the clothes)

how to proceed
How to proceed:

step 1: By looking at the model shape of UNICEF you can draw the body shape of pigotte on the two layered cloth. the height of a pigotta should be at most 50 cm long. step 2: Now you can cut the cloth according to the lines you drew.step 3: sew the body of the cloth as a framework by letting some space to insert the staff in it. step 4: you can sew it with a machine

go on
Go on…
  • step 5: reverse the cloth, insert the staff, and sew the part which was left opened before. step 6: sew the joints of legs and arms to allow them to bend and to make them sit. step 7: Now you can dress it. You can make the clothes according to the style you prefer. step 8: draw or lace the face of the doll (eyes, nose, mouth etc.) last step: you can prepare a pigotta identity card and fill it : a photo, name, date of birth, and the name of person who made it .
