MENTI LOCALI: Ritorno a Spinaceto
a project by
Luigi Coppola and Davide Franceschini
in collaboration with “Ettore Majorana” High School
menti locali is a collaborative project between Fondazione Giuliani, visual artists and high schools, which activates the stories, communities and spaces of the urban periphery. It identifies teaching as a privileged position for the development of research and for the diffusion of contemporary culture, and sees schools as an acute observatory of the local area, with the ability to rethink the production and distribution of aesthetic experiences.
On this occasion, the Foundation, together with guest co-curator Cecilia Canziani, collaborated with the Ettore Majorana High School, inviting artists Luigi Coppola and Davide Franceschini to create a project together with the students, which began with an exploration of the neighbourhood Spinaceto and ended with the creation of a collective artwork.
menti locali: Ritorno a Spinaceto was produced by Fondazione Giuliani and MIBACT (Direzione Generale Arte e Architettura Contemporanee e Periferie Urbane), curated by Adrienne Drake and Cecilia Canziani, developed and coordinated by Luigi Coppola and Davide Franceschini in collaboration with the students of Ettore Majorana High School: Michele Amicarelli, Riccardo Barboni, Martina Bovi, Martina Cacciola, Elisa Carpentieri, Francesco Cerqua, Giulia Colamarrtino, Alice Donatone, Amir Elnahss, Edoardo Fedeli, Giorgia Frigeri, Francesco Grossholz, Gabriele Lalli, Gabriele Lausdei, Giorgia Liberati, Beatrice Maiolatesi, Andrea Marcellini, Emma Palombelli, Valerio Parente, Diego Picucci, Camilla Pozzi, Giulia Quaglieri, Giacomo Tacconi, Mattia Talarico, Federico Tallarico, Maria Tisano, Emilia Trombetta, and coordinated for the high school by Patrizia Bucciarelli and Daniela D’Alia.
