The main concepts of MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires, curated by Arch. Luca Curci (founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, It’s LIQUID Group and International ArtExpo), are the unifying power of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city.
Architects and designers have been invited to work on the theme of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city. We imagine a future in which sustainable thinking will be the common ground of every cultures’ architecture expressions, and the hybridization of social and cultural realities will represent the new frontier of our lives. Artists, photographers and video makers will be present works on the theme of urban identities and hybridization between identities, bodies and urban settings in contemporary time. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.

Palazzo Albrizzi is one of the Venetian aristocracy’s palaces, situated in Cannaregio 4118, near Ca’ D’Oro. Constructed by the famous Capello family, in the 18th century the Palazzo passed into the hands of the Albrizzi family. The palace is the headquarter of ACIT Venezia, one of the most important Italian-German cultural association, and has often been collateral venue of Venice Biennale.
