Giovedì 25 aprile il Piazzone di Viareggio torna a vivere. Dalle 20,30 di fronte al Caffè Irene musica, poesia e piccole arti di strada per rivivere il mercato aperto come luogo di scambio e aggregazione. Tra suggestioni swing, poesia civile, incursioni nella letteratura nostra (Viani e Tobino)… una sana passione ci fa dire che anche questa è Liberazione!

An exhibition co-curated with Luigi Mauri in Milan. With Etnik, Moneyless, Massimo Pasca and Zed1, four artists and their canvases, different perspectives on urban art. They are born or they simply live and work in Tuscany, between Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Certaldo. Tuscany is a land with long country roads that cross small town so full of history, frightening to the present.

A project I curated in the Municipality of Viareggio, finding a giant wall for street artist Cristian Sonda to let him paint an imaginary forest. In a big black and white wall-painting, every tree is in some way linked to a human character. The project was conducted in three days in deep contact with local residents.

Brida Art Collective (Slovenia) – Sendi Mango, Jurij Pavlica and Tom Kersevan
BridA’s research questions on technology in our lives, focusing on our imagination as citizens involved in a participatory art project. Modux is an analysis of a work of art production process, considering it from another point of view, that of the science. Here the role of the artist and the opportunities for interaction are redefined, with the audience participating in the creative phase.
A research project commissioned by GingerZone, Scandicci Cultura and Regione Toscana, consisting in a ten-day residency in Ljubljana with Gianfranco Masi, focusing on urban art and remains of socialism in contemporary Slovenian art. Results were collected in Art in Lubiana, a publication and a video documentary.
