From an idea of Benedetta Carpi De Resmini
Curated by Latitudo Art Projects
21 July – 8 October 2022 | Rome
Città Foresta, the winning project of the ‘Estate Romana 2022 – Riaccendiamo la città, Insieme‘ (Roman Summer 2022 – Let’s re-ignite the city, together), is a workshop festival that took place over 11 days in July-October in three Roman neighbourhoods: Trullo, Laurentino 38 and Corviale. The festival aims to involve a wide and diverse audience by focusing on nature, green areas, their ability to become pulsating centres of aggregation, creativity and encounter, and their relationship with the surrounding urban areas.
Together with associations and artists, workshops in construction, drawing, theatre, storytelling, printing, music and nature walks were devised, leading the public to a greater awareness of urban and natural spaces. The three neighbourhoods chosen for the activities are characterised by being densely populated areas, but also by the presence of large green areas that are often unused. The workshops, which were entirely for free and available by reservation, served to create moments of confrontation, co-creation, exchange and discussion in order to relate the chosen neighbourhoods.
