CAPACITyES zoom-in 1, the fantasy that creates places

zoom 1 capacyties
Children's imagination can make our cities more welcoming and harbingers of inclusion-oriented messages, of symbolic meanings that can enrich our experience of citizenship. A widespread and non-aggressive educational system that manages to provide strong points of reflection on the themes of civil coexistence and on the ample opportunities to be developed to combat the various urban poverty that distinguish the contemporaneity of so many European cities.

This first zoom in expands the focus on the creation of a cultural corridor, consisting of a series of public works of art dedicated to children and adults, closely inspired by children through preparatory workshops. This cultural corridor made up of murals inspired by the Odyssey becomes a physical link between the major regeneration projects operated through the UIA in Bergamo, but also a metaphorical journey that seeks to bring migrants out of poverty or the continuous search for social balance in the civic fabric of European cities.
