Featured Presentation

10 years after the foudation of Musei di Strada Nuova, Palazzo Rosso gives his visitors a free wi-fi connection. Musei di Strada Nuova are now asking to all visitors to take pictures inside and share them on the social media. The project Condividi l’Arte wants to communcate this new aproach: it will be allowed to take pictures of the buildings and their inner treasure. The Major of Genoa, Marco Doria, took his own selfie and he shared on twitter with #selfiealmuseo. This hashtag was used from teens of people to share selfie. Utopia Pirata, the creator and owner of this idea in Genoa, is now looking for other Museum involvement to share arts and to make culture social.

Coderdojo: La Palestra di Programmazione

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Francesco Boano talks about CoderDojo is a global network of clubs that teach young people in areas specializing in computer programming and computer technology. There are now clubs in 22 countries, teaching 10,000 children to write computer code and programs each week.

Founded CoderDojo in 2011 as a not-for-profit organisation that teaches children how to code. It aims to teach them creative problem-solving skills and practical creative skills and was launched in Ireland in mid-2011. The first CoderDojo took place on 23 July 2011 in the National Software Centre in Cork.

The initiative arrived in Genoa this year, with the opening of the first “dojo” at Talent Garden Genova.


Ci son Vite che Capitano e Vite da Capitano

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Manifesto per la poesia di strada e l’assalto poetico
(Milano, 2001)

Ivan …la poesia di strada nasce gettando parole tra le vie, pugni di semi nel vento, è sensazione precipitata in sassi d’assalto tra lo snocciolarsi scomposto di questa città. Versi come pioggia tra le genti, inzuppate fin’oltre l’orlo dell’attenzione, senza corte di dotti ne corona, perché d’ovunque e da sempre, una pagina bianca è una poesia nascosta…

1. sprofonda poesia

2. sfida gli schiaffi della corrente

3. cresci i lampi della folla

4. gettati controvento

5. precipita in picchiata nel vortice del mondo

6. esplodi e assalta d'ovunque

7. chi getta semi al vento farà fiorire il cielo


I Vestiti Nuovi di H.C.

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Matilde Martinelli goes into depth on how I NUOVI VESTITI DI H.C. represents the willingness to establish a link between two of the most powerful means of expression turned to the world of childhood: the fairy tale (written or simply transmitted orally ) which refers to the Prize for unpublished fairy tales H.C. Andersen, and the illustration, which is not meant as a didactic translation of a text, but as an element that enriches a narrative of new meanings.

In an effort to introduce in the festival an aspect strongly connected to the field of illustration, some of the artists in the exhibition will take part in a live drawing performance. This event will take place on the occasion of the proclamation of the fairy tales Prize winners, constituting a visual counterpoint that will come back to introduce itself during the days of the event by conducting many workshops aimed at the children illustration. The group of illustrators operates under the name of UVASPINA, a newborn identity attributed to an open collective, which is active only during the days of the Festival.


Carte di famiglia

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

I want to realize some picture-postcards that show “historical” family scenes.

These drows are made on tellings and descriptions of caracters and environment, so them are personalized for a single family. As if we look at an old photo album, we could have a memory sketch album.

I work as architect in Genova.

In 2011 founded the graphic and photo project RetròScatto.

From 2006 since 2013 I have joined and worked with Linkinart, group founded with other architects.

I have attended at some art exhibitions and realized illustration for publishing and music cd.



Dynamicube floor & table lamp

@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

DYNAMICUBE (floor lamp)

Dynamicube floor lamp is a simple cube made of eight enlightening smaller cubes. Three simple hinged movements invert the lamp: its outer surfaces all become inner surfaces and vice versa.

Dynamicube may easily be produced in series, given that its main structure is composed by the assembly of interlocking pieces having the same shape.
The framework is made of aluminum (a plate of a few millimeters shaped with the thick laser cut technique) and is covered with special polycarbonate films.
A sorter box is used for the exterior, which is assembled without the use of any screws or bolts.
The project takes inspiration from the patent of Peter-Michael Pfeiffer in 1964 and following evolution made by Naoki Yoshimoto in 1971.

DYNAMICUBE II (table lamp)
Dynamicube II is an enlightened cube (15x15 cm) which may be decomposed and shaped in many positions.
The project takes inspiration from the geometry of the cube and its simple decomposition.
A complete revolution of its shape may be done with a few easy movements: the outer surfaces of the cube all become inner surfaces and vice versa.
The lamp creates a paradox: when the bright faces are turned towards the interior it creates a lantern effect that does not really exist. As a matter of fact there is no light bulb or light source at the center of
the object: it's the structure itself of the cube that creates the light seen from outside.
Dynamicube II is made of four square surfaces and four triangular ones. Four square faces of the cube are OLED panels (also an option is to add four further OLED triangular panels): the OLED are both on
the external and internal faces of the cube.
The structure is made with the technology of Wood-Skin®


Vuoto a (p)rendere

@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

The void is Smart! beacause it is unitary, secret, but also diversified, open, collective. The void is a primary resource for humans, starting with the fact that it is above all place within which it is possible to establish relationship between subjects, objects and places.
Vuoto a (p)rendere is a research axis of Neostudio oriented to the enhancement of the space starting from two main aspects: on the hand the identification and amplification of the specific qualities - both evident that latent - of the context, on the other hand the extension of the potential of fruition places through the establishment of a new balance between public and private domain, between inside and outside, between permanent and temporary.




@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,

citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.


speakers Michela Delbosco and Giovanni Fassio


StudioStorie | Scuola di Storytelling, Sceneggiatura, Scrittura

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Se ti piace scrivere (e quindi anche leggere), StudioStorie fa per te; se ami il cinema, la letteratura, i fumetti e, a prescindere dall’età, vuoi scoprire i segreti della scrittura, StudioStorie fa per te; se pensi di avere talento o, al contrario, non sei molto sicuro di averne, StudioStorie fa per te. StudioStorie è una scuola, divertente ma rigorosa, che ti aiuterà a coniugare istinto e regole: perché scrivere non è solo improvvisazione, né mero esercizio di stile. È questione di cuore, di pancia e di testa. A differenza degli spunti da cui derivano, i grandi film di successo e i romanzi più avvincenti non sono mai esclusivo frutto dell’estemporaneità: sono la tecnica e l’abilità a fare la differenza. E siccome la tecnica si può apprendere e l’abilità perfezionare, è nata StudioStorie, la prima scuola che svela l’esistenza di alcuni princìpi comuni alla base dei diversi generi narrativi. Le lezioni, un piacevole mix di teoria e pratica, vi permetteranno di ideare storie affascinanti, di scriverle in modo ineccepibile e di trasformarle poi in sceneggiature (per cinema o per fumetto), romanzi o racconti. Come in un gioco di prestigio, ma senza trucchi (tranne quelli del mestiere), l’esperienza e l’entusiasmo di Sergio Badino ti consentiranno di mettere in luce le tue attitudini e di acquisire la competenza necessaria per scrivere (bene) storie (belle).
