ARTE IN PIAZZA per UniCredit & Art

Nuovi orizzonti

On Sunday 28 September 2008, on the occasion of the Artelibro Art Book Festival, the educational departments of MAMbo, MART, Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art, Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro as part of the UniCredit & Art project, joined together to rediscover in the collective experience of art a new way of looking at reality and to build a common landscape that arises from a collective painting action. 

An activity open to everyone, children, teenagers and adults, which proposed an immense imaginary skyline by placing the simplified drawings, subsequently painted by the participants, of architectural elements of some Italian cities on the same horizon line. The public was supported by the museum teams and the students of the Communication and Art Teaching Course of the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna.

The interest in the architectural dimension of this edition of Arte in Piazza was also to be understood as a tribute to Palladio - a great architect and set designer capable of radically impacting the Italian and European scene with his style - on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his birth. 2008 was also the year of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
