San Michele di Ganzaria (CT) - Italy



The linear park between Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina came back to life, between May 5 and 10, 2009, with the PICNIC AT THE TEMPIO RIVER, as a workshop for the development of project designs and instantaneous constructions conceived and produced by NOWAlab. The workshop, curated by Mario Lupano, Marco Navarra and Alessandro Rocca, is working this year on the theme BUILDING TEXTURE.



"Building Texture" explores the field where live together various design approaches and techniques, coming from fashion design, architecture and contemporary art and literature. The activity of building is framed in ateliers driven by professionals of the different branch of creative design. These labs are integrated by other teams which work with media and visual instruments – graphic and web design, photography, video making – exploiting the communication of the workshop. Meals will be designed and managed by an atelier of food design.
