“This exhibition is a declaration of the commitment which art and architecture assume in the process of global, socially responsible transformation” Michelangelo Pistoletto
The XII edition of Arte al Centro di una Trasformazione Sociale Responsabile (Art at the Centre of a Responsible Transformation of Society) – titled Turning Point Architecture – exhibits the best projects of natural architecture realised in Italy, selected in collaboration with ANAB the National Association of Bio-ecological Architecture. The exhibition gives a space to the first Observatory of Italian Turning Point Architecture.
From May 24th to 2008 to May 31st 2009
Turning Point Products is a project of research, gathering, exhibiting and commercialising natural or recycled materials, born from the synergy between leading technology and environmental responsibility. The materials are displayed inside the supermarket using discarded supermarket fittings.
With the exhibition Arte al Centro 2008: Turning Point Architecture, the agreement between Art and Architecture is highlighted. Cittadellarte and ANAB - the National Association of Bio-ecological Architecture – work on this agreement by diffusing the culture of sustainability through events, exhibitions, conventions and workshops.
In occasion of Arte al Centro 2008 (Art at the Centre) Cittadellarte opens N.O.V.A.Civitas srl(New Organisms of Habitational Life) a business of consultancy, project planning and commercialisation of products for sustainable architecture.
In this company, the continuous aesthetical and ethical expression of creativity that is at the heart of all the activities of Cittadellarte, is essential.
The objective of N.O.V.A.Civitas is to promote sustainable culture through the projection and realisation of New Organisms of Habitational Life that establishes the rapport between people and the environment through responsibility and sustainability.
