Tresoldi Academy is an innovative educational project, created by Studio Studio Studio of Edoardo Tresoldi and YAC with the aim of offering workshops where young people can explore and learn about the issues of contemporary art, through the creation of site specific installations that can contribute to enhancing the value of the territories where they are installed.
Tresoldi Academy positions itself between art and architecture and young talented people will have the opportunity to take part in the creative process of one of the most prestigious and appreciated brands of contemporary art.
Overview of the Challenge
In its first edition – thanks to the exclusive collaboration of Unipol and the scientific contribution of G124 (the group organized by architect Renzo Piano for research and constant and continuous planning on the theme of suburbs urban) – Tresoldi Academy invites creative young people to reflect on a great important and contemporary topic.
Focused in Emilia – the territory that is the subject of G124’s research for 2020 – the workshop will focus on the impact that site-specific art installations can have on the outskirts in our country. Starting from two different locations – a suburb characterized by the Park XXII Aprile in Modena and the metropolitan suburbs of Via Stalingrado, 31 in Bologna – the participants will have the opportunity to think and implement an itinerary of refined artistic micro-interventions in order to offer a new identity and centrality to these places.
Thanks to the regeneration of art and the transformation into a horizon of creative experimentation, the Emilian suburbs will become a laboratory and a model of urban rebirth for the entire national territory.
