Un percorso fra luoghi, persone e arte

In a constant dialogue between art and design, with an exhibition designed for the Dino Zoli Foundation, the exhibition proposes a suggestive journey between imagination and memory that returns a new approach to the collection of 29 seats exhibited in the first place at the Medieval Civic Museum of Bologna in occasion of the XIV Contemporary Art Day.

Starting from the story of words, images and sounds of the boys of social cooperatives La Fraternità e Arca di Noè, the students
of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, of the Decoration Course for Architecture, have designed the textile patterns of the seats. In the research project, dedicated to living, the archive of signs and oral heritage collected during the meetings were graphically re-elaborated in the prints by the new narratives.

IT’S HERE, the phrase printed on one of the seats, created with reclaimed structures, symbolically presents the relationship as a result of mixing different identities, made up of desires, emotions and memories that inspired the project.
