Izmo, after two editions of Summer Schools, has organized the first edition of the International Winter School in Turin (Italy) from January 16th to January 25th 2013, which focuses on interior design and creative re-use. The course is targeted to students, graduates, professionals, and, in general, anyone who is interested in the subject of ecological and creative design.
The lectures (in English language) will be held by experts and professors of interior design and creative re-use of spaces, with the aim to provide insights as broad and multidisciplinary as possible. In addition, students will have the opportunity to experience firsthand methods of ecological and interactive design that will enable him or her to work creatively with waste materials and to approach to participatory design practices.
The training offered will be further enhanced by a meeting with Controprogetto [Italy], UdA [Italy] and Truly Design [Italy], who as special-guests will show their projects and approaches to the topic. At the end of their lessons, participants will intervene effectively on a dismissed public bus, located in the Cecchi-Point courtyard: a multicultural hub of a neighborhood located in Turin, near Izmo’s office. Students will design and refurbish the bus, in order to create a new urban space: a play room for the children of the neighborhood, who usually get together at the Cecchi Point after school time.
Each student will receive all the materials and work tools necessary and will be mentored by Izmo staff in each phase of the project.
Participants of the Winter School will be awarded 4 credits, recognized by the Politecnico di Torino, transferable at any other university.
In addition, we will provide constant support in logistics, housing research, mobility, and tourism.

Izmo was established in 2006 in Turin, Italy. The association focuses on participatory process, local development, architecture, design and ICT. The name Izmo originates from the word isthmus, a thin line of land that joins two areas. Our research topic is in fact the territory: where interactions take place between public space and individuals. Our mission is to link the territories, the people with the land and the citizens with each other. We do this, for instance, through projects of urban design, installation; organization of seminars, meetings and workshops; and developing of Web platforms. In all cases, the projects designed by Izmo come from reading and from listening to people and places that will benefit from our operations.

Vedere lontano

gallipoli_puglia

Qualcuno si lamenta sempre del mal tempo. Il vento gelido da nord che taglia la faccia e penetra nelle ossa.

Qui a Gallipoli è normale. Il mare si increspa, l’aria si congela, ma il lato positivo c’è. Il sole splende, l’aria tersa fa brillare le cose e fa vedere quello che rientra un po’ nel mito locale.

Diciamo che sono cresciuta con la leggenda: sai, dopo una giornata di tramontana si vede la Calabria.

Ovviamente mai vista. E’ un mito, una fesseria.

Fino a ieri.

Ero come al solito ad “errare” a Gallipoli (vedi titolo della mia tesi…). Mi fermo a guardare l’orizzonte. Un tramonto magnifico.

Un’infinità di sfumatore di rosso e arancione, che sprofondano nel blu profondo del mare. E al di là?

Le montagne della Calabria.


io l’ho sempre detto che si vedeva…comunque anche in Calabria gira la stessa voce sulla visione mitica della Puglia
