The exhibition-event INTERNI OPEN BORDERS, presented during the FuoriSalone 2016, moves to Piacenza. From today to 16 October 2016 three of the city’s key locations – Palazzo Rota Pisaroni, Palazzo Farnese and Galleria d’Arte Moderna Ricci Oddi – will host 9 installations, macro-objects, micro-constructions and exhibitions that explore how the boundaries between different disciplines have been overcome. The issue is treated as the extension of a design vision towards new synergies and the application of architecture and design to evolving sectors such as technology and research into sustainability.
INTERNI has involved Italian designers of international calibre with different backgrounds and experience with a view to creating a mosaic of styles and visions and to compare the different character and interpretations of design. They include: Stefano Boeri Architetti with Filiera del Legno FVG and Consorzio Innova FVG; Patricia Urquiola with Cleaf; Carlo Ratti Associati, Marco Ferreri with Cacciati Costruzioni Restauri, Tom Vack with Moroso, Davide Groppi, Vito Di Bari with Metalco Active, Emiliana Martinelli with Martinelli Luce and Leucos.
THE PIACENZA & VIGEVANO FOUNDATION supports innovation, research and creativity. And it is in this light that with INTERNI the Foundation has activated a strong synergy that has led to the realisation of original projects and the presentation of a cultural vision that aims to have a significant impact on the city of Piacenza and the upcoming Festival del Diritto (23-25 September 2016).
The INTERNI OPEN BORDERS PIACENZA exhibition is open from Monday to Thursday, from 9 am to 6 pm, and from Friday to Sunday, from 9 am to 10 pm. Moreover, on 24 September, on the occasion of the “Giornate del Patrimonio”, the exhibition sites will remain open until midnight with free guided tours of the installations in the Palazzo Farnese at 9 pm, 9.45 pm, 10.30 pm and 11.15 pm.
