No Violence Day exhibit - FTA | Filippo Taidelli Architetto
Info & Credits
Client: Pangea Onlus
Program: Public installation
Budget: No profit
For the occasion of the international awareness day of violence against women, organized by the non-profit organization, Pangea, Torino’s historic city center was animated by concerts and events, aimed at awareness and fundraising for the cause. The installation project backdrops the day’s events, while colorfully demarcating the pedestrian path. In Piazza San Carlo, the departure point for the day’s events, a large “divider” is constructed, serving as the backstage for the artists and the retro-illuminated background for the performances. The wall, animated by shadows of the artists and spectators, outlines the form of a stylized star, the non-profit organizer’s symbol. Adjacent to the piazza, in Via Roma , the portico’s columns are adorned with pink panels, articulating the rhythm of the musical parade before its arrival into the piazza. Considering the event’s charitable cause and the lack of funding for the installation, the project recycled materials utilized by the city during the Winter Olympics. The old panels are readapted and painted in order to become not only a constructive module, but the event’s Leitmotiv.
