Rosarno: together for change

Rosarno: together for change

 

origin_4946053155 (1)Rosarno, in Calabria, has been protagonist of a collective action by citizens. During the Festival of Urban Regeneration organized by the “A di Città”, in its second edition, a group of about fifty people formed by architects, students, artists, activists decides to join with population to sow the change. The chosen area to start changing it is a place particularly degraded in the city. Meaningful is the use of the stairs, in this process, as an element of connection between the different parts of the neighborhood. Hence was born the idea of creating a “Park of stairs” characterized by art installations and street art, together with décor projects and urban design designed and self-built by the boys of “work in progress” coordinated by three groups (Collectif Etc in Strasbourg, DettoFatto Lab of Agrigento, Studio SuperFluo in Rome) and the scenography prepared with neighborhood kids by two companies of theater and dance (Senza Confini di Pelle and Compagnia Teatro Rendina).
