Città Foresta, the winning project of the “Estate Romana 2022” call, led us for the whole summer to explore three roman districts: Trullo, Laurentino 38 and Corviale. Conceived by Benedetta Carpi De Resmini and curated by Latitudo Art Projects, the project was inspired by the city, its morphology and the presence of numerous green areas to rethink and enhance.

From the perspective of the Festival, there was the desire to bring to the attention the necessity of “making the city” and “making the nature”, the will to rebuilt, where it has been lost, the will to interact, to build new relationships, new opportunities of care and education for the ecosystem that surrounds us.

A Festival that combined art and ecology and, through the collaboration of artists and associations, brought us to build a narration, an eco-urban environment with the aim of raising awareness among the public on the relationship between green areas and urban spaces, focusing on the ability of nature to be configured as a place of aggregation, sharing and co-creation.

For 10 days we crossed, explored, built, coloured and animated green areas of the three districts with activities related to music, theatre, architecture, street art dedicated to a large audience of children, teenagers and adults.

The workshops, which took place from July to October, started from Trullo, continued in Laurentino 38 and ended with the last 3 appointments in Corviale.

After this long journey spent together, on Saturday 8th October at the Corviale Theatre we gave life to the final event of the Festival: a moment of restitution and sharing of all the activities carried out during these three intense and exciting months of workshops.

A day full of meetings, performances, narrations and monsters presented by Ponte Radio. The A.I.Me.F and Laboratorio di Città Corviale associations told us about their naturalistic walks, the sound of the plants and the activities carried out to raise awareness on the relationship between city and nature. Following, the “Gang dell’ARCA”, a group of strange fantastic beings created by the children in the GROOVE’s workshops came to life thanks to the small actors who created the performance inside our ARCA (VIVIAMOLAq). Together with Maria Angeles Vila Tortosa and her printed sheets we reflected on the values of care, regeneration and rebirth, creating with her and the participants the ideal new roots of our Città Foresta. With John Cascone, his “research group” and his “guided imagination exercises” we recalled the primordial sound forest of TruLauCor, which united the districts of Trullo, Laurentino and Corviale.

The artist Jacopo Natoli also contributed to the final event with an interactive performance aimed to investigate the relationship between natural environment and urban scenario through the construction of a new Città Foresta ABC book.

During the final event took also place the final restitution of City Jungle, a project created for the international platform Magic Carpets, co-financed by Creative Europe Programme, which involved the artists Berta Tilmantaitė (Lithuania), Sunny Nwume aka Black Elektronika (Italy) and the communities of Laurentino and Corviale.
