    Inaugurazione del tunnel di VIAPADOVAMONDO


    Inauguration by VIAPADOVAMONDO of the railway tunnel on Via Padova.

    EVENT 24 may | 17:00



    The Tunnel Boulevard Project promotes the VIAPADOVAMONDO call for ideas together with the Ufficio Arte negli Spazi Pubblici of Comune di Milano and in collaboration with Municipio 2. It invites artists and graphic designers working in public art to create a poster art project in Via Padova in Milan. The VIAPADOVAMONDO call for ideas will bring the winners of the contest to work with a group, an ethnic group, or a community that is part of the neighborhood and involve it in the process of creating the work. It will emphasize the aspects of inclusion, cultural identity, and multiculturalism of Via Padova through the creation of a participatory work open to the citizens and made with the technique of poster art. The work’s background will be the walls of the pedestrian passages of the Via Padova railway tunnel; it will run along the two thirty-five-meter-long sides of the tunnel - in both directions of travel. The Via Padova tunnel is part of the project for the recovery of public spaces called Tunnel Boulevard, led by the Associazione T12 Lab. Tunnel Boulevard aims to give the five railway tunnels of Via Pontano back to the citizens by recovering them from degradation and renewing their use through projects that enhance the spaces of the railway artifacts with cultural, artistic, and sports activities, strictly public and free of charge.

    EXHIBITION 24 - 25 - 26 may | 00:00 - 00:00
