dolomiti contemporanee and the Vajont area are in arcipelago italia, the Italian Pavillion of the 16th venice’s biennale of architecture.
“Arcipelago Italia. Projects for the future of the country’s interior territories” is the title of the project by curator Mario Cucinella for the Italia Pavillion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, promoted by Direzione Generale Arte e Architettura contemporanee e Periferie Urbane, MiBACT.
through arcipelago italia, cucinella has carried out an explorative journey, a reconnaissance of italy‘s inner areas, placing particular focus on a series of sites and projects, as well as architecture and cultural socialization procedures that involve the territory’s participation, and that are always equipped with a vision in regards to the determination of the future of the human landscapes, one that presents itself through good practices, actions based on networking strategies, open regenerative process-oriented approaches, and re-innovative ideas which may prove themselves to be capable of responsibly tackling the theme of enhancement and reclaiming of the environmental, landscape-related, cultural and social heritage.
the sites aren’t enough in and of themselves, and there is no future for the heritage if the people don’t operate towards that goal: the future is the product of present actions.
the call for the italian pavillion was answered by more than 500 projecs, 67 of which have eventually been selected by the curator, and find now a home at the tese delle vergini at the arsenale.
among them is dolomiti contemporanee, inside the itinerary dedicated to the eastern alps.
a great photograph of vajont’s mt. toc (by isabella sassi farìas), sighted from the nuovo spazio di casso, welcomes visitors at the entrance of the pavillion.
the exhibit will remain open until november 25th 2018.
The Exhibition “Ritratti” (Portraits) by Monica Biancardi opens today at Museo di Roma in Trastevere.
Here can be found also the faces and the hands of some of the people of Casso, portrayed by the artist during her period of residence at Dolomiti Contemporanee (summer 2014), when she worked at her own project for the international artistic contest two calls for vajont.
On Monday, June the 19th 2017, Deborah Serracchiani, president of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, came here, in the Vajont area.
She first visited the dam, together with the mayors, the vice president Bolzonello, and the people in charge of the enel plant.
the nuovo spazio di casso will be open in July, from Thursday to Sunday, from 10 am to 12:30 pm and from 2:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
there, visitors will find an exhibit displaying a selection of the projects showcased in the international artistic contest twocalls for vajont.
