PLACES are connected to the concept of time, memories, borders and disorders. Places are tangible and finite unit of space. We can experience places through body or senses. This division of the festival invites artists and architects to explore new grounds, searching a new vision of contemporary places, related to new human behaviors, city transformations and everyday life needs.
The festival focuses on the concept of SURFACES
, borders and structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban places, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which surfaces shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of "liquid bodies and cities", where differences create new possibilities, developing new structures, physical, intellectual and spiritual. The festival aims to analyze the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time.
