This year Simposio will take place among the mountains, at the Eni Village in Borca di Cadore (BL); it is a post-war utopian project in the heart of the Dolomites. In the village’s premises the Progetto Borca has been implemented for a few years; this project aims at fueling the cultural valorization to kick off a series of functional practices to permanently using the venue, such as educational activities and artistic residencies.
Simposio will be planning three days of shared activities within the village spaces, thus repopulating the wooden huts of the camping, reactivating the canteen service and using the wonderful spaces in the colony. Three days during which a community of willing people will face the mountain environment, the artistic practice, the practical analysis, the utopia. Three days in which artists and intellectuals will share ideas and thoughts and will deal with the need to shape a common model, starting from the village.
Within the Village we will try to define new rules for the society through self-managed workshops; everyone will be free to propose contents and activities. Every workshop will be documented to write testimony documents and a manifesto for future activities. Undoubtedly, Simposio is a non-profits project, which existence depends on active participation.
