FACCE DI BARRIERA / FACES FROM THE BORDER
SEPTEMBER 2021 | 64 PORTRAITS
In Piacenza Barriera Farnese is a public housing neighborhood that marks the limits between the city center and the suburbs of the town. In that closed neighborhood of 8 buildings lives together people and families from different countries and cultures. in the past year, the gap in educational poverty of children and young people in the neighborhood has increased considerably given by the closure of schools and municipal activities. So with a group action of young people supported by Caritas, the municipality of Piacenza, and Politecnico the University of Architecture, we are planning a series of interventions (artistic ateliers, collective readings, listening, narration) for children and young people that will take place in the neighborhood through the summer, so that they can, through the sharing of experiences, have a chance to bring out and share with all the city the richness of their neighborhood and of themselves. There will be involved educators, young student of architectural courses, people and family from the neighborhood, and there will be means at their disposal to be able to bridge, at least in part we hope, the cultural and educational gap.
