“The memory in your pocket”
Memory is a term that the visual arts, in recent decades, have turned into aesthetic category producing projects and artworks in public and private spaces. These projects and artworks investigated different themes such as identity, tradition, history, monument, our roots in order to search for a meaning of our contemporary life.
The workshop offers a path of knowledge focused on these themes and will investigate the Genoese urban spaces and their inhabitants through the personal experiences of the participants.

The workshop will take place in three stages:
- In the first day , after a presentation of the workshop , the artists involved will describe their own research to the others in order to initiate a debate and confront their ideas that are necessary for mutual understanding.
- Within three next days of the workshop participants will work on projects while maintaining an ongoing dialogue that will nurture mutual comparison useful to this workshop.
- The fifth and final day there is foreseen that the participants will prepare a presentation of their projects as it was a setting up of an exhibition.
