According to the world of the project coordinator of the festival, architect Domenico Fallacara: “BORDERS contains a theoretical and practical research, something thinkable and tangible. BODIES+CITIES SKIN is the first step of this research, that starts from the borderline par excellence, the SKIN.

In Architecture the skin, buildings’ and cities’ skin, is the way that architectural objects have to face the world. To impress and to be impressed. In Art, the skin is the surface of the artistic objects, the artworks, but also the skin of the artists, the skin of the human beings as an art field.

The skin is the place where each man and each object ends and the world starts.

BODIES+CITIES SKIN is a research on this contact point and on this starting point.
To experience something new“.

BODIES+CITIES SKIN – Human kind wants to wear his city like a second skin without borders or limits. City’s body is in constant evolution. It changes its skin and shows a renewed body. This mutation follows the direction of human being development and it is a clear and true statement of cities changing time. From borders as individual bodies and souls to boundaries of cities in which we live, each line delimitates a surface and could be the starting point to something new, undiscovered. Limits are everywhere, barriers keep us inside or outside spaces and societies. Their passing creates a crossover of identities and urban environment. The way we move, we relate to anything, to the world make us go beyond boundaries.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal.  It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.

Interviews | September 7, 2020

Laura Sandroni was born in Varese in 1985. She approaches art and painting since she was a child, she carries on this passion over the years as a self-taught. His works are used for a strong use of color which she uses as an emotional and communicative vehicle.

His works are the primary channel with which he transmits the changes and emotional states that are part of life, sensations and feelings that feed the soul and body and that often happens in the form of female figures.
