From 12 July to 21 October, Fondazione Pastificio Cerere will be staging I Fuochi di San Lorenzo. Discovering Rome’s Art District as part of Estate Romana 2022, which is promoted by Roma Capitale – Council for Culture. The interdisciplinary project conceived by Marcello Smarrelli and Claudia Cavalieri will take place between the spaces of Fondazione Pastificio Cerere and the streets of San Lorenzo, offering a wide range of free initiatives such as exhibitions, talks, educational workshops, performances and guided tours specifically designed to offer experiences and learning moments in the fields of figurative arts, performing arts and social issues.
I Fuochi di San Lorenzo. Discovering Rome’s Art District will strengthen the dialogue between Fondazione Pastificio Cerere – a place of cultural aggregation and a reference point for contemporary art born from one of the first European experiences of urban regeneration – and the San Lorenzo district, i.e., the Italian capital’s art district par excellence. The project aims at triggering creative processes based on participation and relationships – understood as privileged tools for personal and community growth –, improving life in our cities and aspiring to a kind of regeneration that is not merely spatial and architectural but above all relational.
I Fuochi di San Lorenzo. Discovering Rome’s Art District is promoted by Roma Capitale – Council for Culture, is the winner of the Estate Romana 2022 Public Notice and is curated by the Department of Cultural Activities.
