Among the projects supported by Fondazione Palazzo Te in Mantua (Italy), again this year Scuola di Palazzo Te organizes “Fare Arte“, a 9-days residential course open to young artists and led by a group of professors composed by researchers, artists and experts in different artistic and scientific disciplines.
This course aims to increase project management skills in the context of cultural production, focusing on the artistic experience as a practice of trainable faculties such as attention, listening, knowledge, design and action.
“Scuola di Palazzo Te – says the Director Stefano Baia Curioni – offers the experience of a practical and fruitful relationship with the cultural heritage and tradition. A relationship that comes from contemporaneity, from poetic and artistic practices and from the awareness that the best cultural design can’t help a live relationship with memory and cultural heritage.”
From this point of view, Palazzo Te, a Renaissance masterpiece by Giulio Romano, is a place in which culture does not deposit itself passively but it becomes living and contemporary, turning into a mutlidisciplinary space for learning and experimentation, a real workshop in which creative processes can arise.
It is precisely in this context, therefore, about the past and the future, the tradition, about Italian handcraft and artisanal skills and their application in contemporary projects, that Lino Reduzzi will speak as a guest of the course, telling and showing some projects realized by Studio Reduzzi that “so perfectly describe the “modernity of ancient”, reminding us of the silent forces and powers of antiquity embodied by the new.”
