In conjunction with the Cadore’s Culture Week, Saturday, May the 14th 2016 Progettoborca hosts a new Open-Studio.
The tour will allow for the access inside the Colonia (Eng.: summer camp building), overall the largest structure of the Village (30.000 square meters), abandoned for about 25 years, and now pivot of a recovery program launched by Dolomiti Contemporanee and Minoter in 2014. The public will thus be able to discover this frozen architectural giant, which today houses a lively artistic and artistic hub, and whose future purposes are being envisioned.
Thanks to the visit, it will thus be possible to retrace the unique backgound of this site, wanted by Enrico Mattei and realized by Edoardo Gellner, so important in the history of cultural and business innovation in Italy. And it will also be possible to dwell on the pieces realized by the artists currently taking part in the Residency program active inside the Village, discovering the active labs in the compound.
The Open-Studio will be held from 3 to 5 PM.
After the tours, visitors will be able to reach the Church of Our Lady of the Cadore (Edoardo Gellner/Carlo Scarpa).
Participation is free of charge.
The Cadore’s Culture Week is taking place between the 7th and 15th of May, and is promoted by the Magnifica Comunità di Cadore together with the Cadore’s Dolomites’ Museum Network, in collaboration with the Veneto Region, the Tiziano and Cadore Study Centre Foundation, the GAL Altobellunese, the Belluno Province, the Philological Society of the Friuli and the Archaeological Group of the Cadore.
