RUFA has activated a partnership with Fondazione Pastificio Cerere, a no profit foundation created in 2005 inside the Cerere pasta factory, its main objective being promoting and supporting contemporary art.
Through a plentiful arrangement of meetings, exhibitions and workshops, the Foundation aims to promote interactions between contemporary artistic languages and the experimentation of new modes of participation and intervention, while stimulating an open dialogue with the city and including an increasingly diverse public.
One of the intents of the Foundation’s mission is to meticulously keep track of all of the activities addressed to the training. It couldn’t be any other way if we consider the history of the building where it is based and its re-conversion from an old pasta factory to a place of artistic production, cultural hub, work and exchange space, and ever so welcoming.
The collaboration, activated with the intent of creating a synergy between the cultural bodies present in the building and to actively include the boys and girls that live in and share the building’s space, offers RUFA students the chance to use the Foundation’s expositive spaces: the silos, where grain was originally stored, and Spazio Molini, residing underground and recently recovered thanks to the restoration of the ancient mill.
