Loredana Celano We all do the same way
“(…) I believe integration should be based on common experiences. Via Padova is a place of contamination, a street populated by people from all-over-the-world, and for this it commands that care and that respect the Italians too have the chance to rediscover. Telling in images the life of via Padova means showing the story of a changing quarter in a developing city: a necessary and possible cohabitation between different people puzzling by daily common acts. (Loredana Celano)
Via Padova People, curated by Leo Torri
This exhibition, that is a communication project too, means to link all the street with a unique and recognizable mark: besides Assab One, copies of the placards are displayed in the windows of the shopkeepers joining the initiative. The aim is to let the retailers share in the via Padova valorization event, giving visibility to the businesses that, with their presence, liven up the quarter and aid the dialogue among the different ethnic groups of the street.
Tutamondo, Urban Disorientations
In 2010, during the first edition of Via Padova is better than Milan, in cooperation with the Cooperative Tempo per l’Infanzia, Tutamondo produced a relational art project with residents and passersby. People were invited to a photo-portrait into two sets in piazzetta Mosso. Now, in Assab One, an installation returns to the quarter the 200 pictures of the shooting, besides the ones taken during a feast in the Rom Camp of via Idro, in Adriano quarter in 2011.
