Artistic installations, performances, swap parties and Disco Soup for the opening of the new headquarters in Rome

The newAccademia Italiana Roman headquarters opens to the public on Thursday, July 6. For the occasion, an event open to all citizens to show an area of the district of San Lorenzo totally renovated. Artistic installations and fashion shows with projects realized by students, DJ sets, Swap Party and Disco Soup in an event to celebrate the final works of graduates and inaugurate the first campus dedicated to design in Italy.

A day-long party to discover an area of the San Lorenzo district that has remained inaccessible to citizens for years: Thursday, July 6 Accademia Italiana opens the doors of the new headquarters at the Ex Dogana with "unchAIned", nine hours of non-stop activities open to the public, from 14.00 to 23.00, in collaboration with associations and realities of the territory.

 

The focus of the event will be sensory design, design beyond the vision that promotes inclusiveness and focuses on diverse and multisensory perspectives. During the day people will participate in a sensory journey through multidisciplinary rooms dedicated to fashion, photography, jewelry and design. They will be guided by their senses to explore the interactive installations and discover the existing worlds "beyond vision".

 

There will be five activities with which Accademia Italiana intends to celebrate the inauguration of its new Roman headquarters.

 

Interactive installations: real jewelry and perception of jewelry in an installation of lights, colors and reflections. An interactive exhibition to watch, touch, wear, photograph immersing yourself in kaleidoscopic multisensory projections; a photographic path in which the flow of sounds contaminates the way of perceiving images and the expansion of space/ time is a metaphor of an initiatory journey, renewal and rebirth; a tactile model that cancels the visual perception in a sensory path that opens the mind to worlds often unknown.

Fashion Performance: through the act of watching comes the sense of alienation given by the continuous exposure to media screens. The final collections of fashion design students will be shown in a dance performance that fills the viewers' gaze.

 

Swap Party: Bio Fashion Lab and Remake promote the #NoNewClothes campaign in which we challenge ourselves to limit the consumption of new clothes for 90 days. From 14.00 to 16.00, participants bring their clothes to the event ready to be donated. At the start of the Swap Party from 16.00 until 18.00. An opportunity for exchange, comparison and knowledge with the partners of Fashion Revolution Italy to give a second life to your clothes.

 

Disco Soup: from 15.00 to 18.00 you cook and tease in the company of Disco Soup, in partnership with Inspire, Recup, Slow Food Young Network Rome and √ątico against food waste: aperitif and food truck follow a logic of recovery and awareness of the food cycle. At 18.00 a reflection together with Remake, Bio Fashion Lab and Fashion Revolution Italy on overproduction in the textile and food chains, sharing solutions and alternatives to fast food and fast fashion, with an emphasis on the campaign Good Clothes, Fair Pay.

 

Party and dj set: we conclude the day with a moment of pure leisure for our guests. Aperitif, music, DJ set and lots of joy to wish the graduating students a future of success and new members good luck for the new academic year!
