the first European festival on creativity

2015 Program

Event #17

Aldo Colonetti, Italo Rota

The space we live in is nothing but an extension of our minds

Is it possible to design with Nature, and not against it? Can we go on using energy at the lowest possible cost, drawing it from renewable sources and protecting the environment we live in, as well as ourselves? Italo Rota and Aldo Colonetti try to answer these important questions setting off from the fact that every project connected to energy faces us with the pressing and powerful issue of our collective and individual future. Designs derive from a combination of research, science, industry, art and humanities acting in concert, mediated and made possible by personal involvement and individual action. As Marc Auge stated, “Everything starts and ends with the most modest of individuals, and the greatest endeavours are vane if they do not concern him at least a little”.
