Art exhibits, concerts, workshops and debates will be held at the Quirinetta Caffé Concerto in Rome until September 18th.
Design, visual arts, music and daily routine: recycling fits literally anywhere, and somebody decided to prove it, and above all to show it to the public. We are talking about the organizers of Riscarti (“Re-waste”), International Festival of Creative Recycling, which opened in Rome, at Quirinetta Caffé Concerto, on Septembr 12th, and will go on until Sunday 18th.
A week’s full immersion into recycling ethics and practice, and much more. Rome’s Quirinetta Caffé Concerto will offer visitors the chance to discover the thousand lives of recycled objects, thanks to the originality and creativity of numerous makers and artists.
The Festival, now at its fourth edition, aims to be a meeting point for environment lovers and will be animated by many events: eco-music played with recycled instruments, meetings with research and innovation experts from numerous universities, exclusive exhibits of art and design items, themed workshops, and many other music and theatre events.
“The acronym of this Festival edition, A.M.M.E.N. (Art, Mobility, Music, Publishing, Nature), is our provocation to emphasise the bond between art and the spiritual field – explains Marlene Scalise, Art Director at Riscarti – The artworks we exhibit are strictly realised with used, recycled and regenerated materials. They are meant to be something like recycling totems, where the skilful use of recycled materials serves as a moral guide to believe in a better world”.
Riscarti received the support of Regione Lazio, I Municipio and Agenzia Mobilità di Roma, and is also a partner of the European Mobility Week.
