Some time ago Foundation Sacra Famiglia started a new cultural project, titled “Affrettati piano: il tempo

dell’arte incontra il tempo del cuore (Hurry up slowly: art time meets heart time)”, with a series of artistic,

musical, theatrical and cultural events, further to specific rehabilitative activities (Arts therapies) devoted to

guests of different divisions. These events are promoted by Foundation Sacra Famiglia with the aim to assert

and give visibility to rights and dignity of people having cognitive disability and/or psychic trouble through

their participation and active integration.

Among the initiatives to celebrate the year 2010 as “European year of voluntary services promoting active

citizens”, the Symposium project, proposed by Foundation Istituto Sacra Famiglia, in partnership with

Mo.V.I., Ciessevi and Comune of Cesano Boscone, sees the participation of 20 artists (men and women) for

a cultural route shared among users, Sacra Famiglia operators and Cesano territory.

The aim of this project is to realize activities inside and outside the Foundation to stimulate a larger

exchange between citizens and disabled people as well as a greater mutual sense of belonging.

Artists, not accidentally coming from the European territory, will elaborate their works inside the Institute

and will lead artistic laboratories open to disabled people, to their reference operators as well as to some

classes of the Alessandrini – da Vinci School, Cesano.

At conclusion of this Symposium a first exhibition of the realized works, open to all citizens, will be done at

Villa Marazzi. A second ehibition will take place during the fall in Milan.

The project objectives are as follows:

– In an hypothesis of interaction, the meeting of people with human and cultural different routes to

 promote the mutual enriching (artists, employees and ISF guests, Cesano citizens)

– Through the examination of works ( realized in laboratories), to analyse creative possibilities of the

 ISF guests

– To enable meeting and comparison between different artistic and linguistic expressions and local

 culture

– To enable ISF guests to take possession of fresh creative artistic expressions

– To promote and make easier the comprehension process of contemporary arts to employees and ISF

 guests as well as to Cesano citizens

– To gather an adequate photographic documentation concerning symposium experiences, in order to

 propose it externally on different occasions (meetings, seminars, conventions, reports on web sites,

articles in Italy and abroad).

Works realized during this Symposium will be exhibited at Foundation Sacra Famiglia, Comune of Cesano

Boscone as well as at House of Volunteers (now under construction), thanks to Ciessevi and Comune of

Milan.

Furthermore during the fall a collective exhibition of all works will be realized in Milan.

In concomitance with the Symposium of Contemporary Art, which will take place at the Fondazione Sacra

Famiglia in Cesano Boscone between 15th and 22nd May, 2011, the Associations ACLI – Il Sogno – Bem

Viver and Galassia organize a meeting with three female and one male artists attending this symposium.

Each artist will present his/her experience gained in connection with people or communities through

relations and images.

Zsuzsanna Ardo, an Anglo-Hungarian artist, photographed several Rom communities in Europe on behalf of

Amnesty International. Collected photos show the search for beauty done by visited communities as well as

by a personal artist’s search.

Isabel Jover and Cesar Reglero Campos, a couple of Spanish artists, will present results of a mail art

convocation having mental trouble as subject.

Rosanna Veronesi, an Italian artist, working as volunteer at the Casa di Gastone in Milan, will expound

phases of mutual work in artistic laboratories lead by experts and intended for guests.

Antonella Prota Giurleo, Italian artist and curatrix, will project and comment images concerning creative

experiences had with detained women in female prisons (Chiorillos in Lima and Bollate close to Milan).

For oral interventions of Zsuzsann Arda, who will speak English, of Cesar Reglero Campos and Isabel Jover,

who will speak Spanish, simultaneous translations are warranted.

The Symposium of Contemporary Art is organized at the Fondazione Sacra Famiglia in Cesano Boscone

with the cooperation of Comune of Cesano Boscone (Assessorship for Social Services),Mo.Vi and ciessevi.
