𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗼𝗱𝗲 is a project involving the wide areas of 𝗘𝗿𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗼 with the idea of creating connection codes between neighbourhoods and people. The aim is to regenerate the historical structure of the city by acting in three neighbourhoods bordering the Archaeological Park of Herculaneum.
The project envisages the realisation of a series of workshops curated by the artistic duo 𝗕𝗶𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗼 𝗩𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗲, which has distinguished itself for years on the local and national territory thanks to its activity of urban requalification through relational and participatory art.
The artists’ intervention is inspired by the Roman-era mosaics of the ancient city of Herculaneum and the typical decorations of the textiles of the Resina market. During the workshops, three contemporary mosaics will be created, aimed at creating a relationship between the different historical periods that have characterised the area: the classical era, the birth of modern archaeology, the post-World War II period and the contemporary period.
The participants involved will be protagonists of a territory activation process and, together with Bianco Valente, will intervene in areas that have been neglected for years but represent crucial places of social aggregation and historical fertility.
The project, in collaboration with 𝗖𝗔𝗣 – 𝗖𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗔𝗿𝘁 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁𝘀 as mentor, sees 𝗩𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗲 𝗞 as leading partner and the 𝗣𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘁𝘂𝘁𝗲 as co-funder, in collaboration with 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗼 𝗔𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗰𝗼 𝗱𝗶 𝗘𝗿𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗼, 𝗙𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘇𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗖𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗼 𝗠𝗔𝗩, 𝗟𝗮 𝗟𝗼𝗰𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗮 𝗱𝗶 𝗘𝗺𝗺𝗮𝘂𝘀 𝗢𝗗𝗩 𝗲 𝗦𝗲𝗺𝗲 𝗱𝗶 𝗣𝗮𝗰𝗲.
