ZONA D’OMBRA/ANGOLAZIONIURBANE 2012
Zona d’ombra is Roberto Sartor’s artwork for the Angolazioniurbane 2012 project, produced by means of a public
workshop in the city of Mestre. The aim of the project is to find a new range of evocative meanings for these spaces, to transform them into something new in a fantastic way. The participants are in contact with the inhabitants, thus activating a citizenship partecipation process. The result will be an object.
A kind of tourist guide, a tool to give value to different places but also a document to be delivered to the architects, urbanists as a possible starting point for their work and to provide new ideas for these spaces.
