Panel 1

Bianca Felicori in conversation with Ghali

6 – 7.30 pm
Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi, Venezia

The dialogue between Bianca Felicori (Forgotten Architecture) and Ghali aims at offering a fresh narrative by exploring a new form of transdisciplinary interaction between Italian music culture and the contemporary issues of architecture and urban planning. The artist – a key figure to understand the evolution of our times – will be the protagonist of this episode in which we will investigate his relationship with his neighborhood: progressively extending the dialogue from his domestic environment to the city of Milan; from the Italian suburbs to the Mediterranean Sea. It will emerge a genuine 'agent of change' actively involved in processes of social awareness, urban regeneration, and global activism: a concrete example of how it is possible today to take care of the as found.
