“Sacralità/Sacro” masterclass kicks off

After the success of the 2021 edition, the Fine Arts masterclass “Sacralità/Sacro – Collaborative site-specific installation” is back.

From 4 to 12 April the Fine Arts masterclass curated by Umberto Giovannini was held again, during which students worked on the realisation of a collective “site specific” project. The aim of the masterclass was to investigate the concept of “sacred” and “sacredness”, and to reinterpret it through the experience of contemporaneity. We will then proceed on a path of iconographic and spatial investigation in a psycho-geographic vision, with which we will enter into the dynamics of space. The work was realized through the xylographic multiple and the installation was placed inside the RUFA Space, the space of the soul, at RUFA Pastificio Cerere and in the heart of San Lorenzo district.
