“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
―Edgar Allan Poe

We are a cultural association, founded in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) in 1991, that aims in developing social health of people through urban art, design, architecture, philosophy, permaculture and urban regeneration.

GREEN IT YOUR WORK

Greener European Cities - CERV Network of Towns

We are partners with other seven countries (Romania, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Ireland, Slovenia and Croatia) in a European project which aims to emphasize the youth role in the green transition and to promote green jobs for greener cities.

The Italian city that will host the final event of GREEN IT YOUR WORK is Cordovado (PN), a beautiful medieval historical center in the countryside of Friuli Venezia Giulia region: this area has an important history behind it, but also the desire to be part of the future of its young people.,

We are part of Gluo.org community

The collaborative platform gluo.org is the sharing economy applied to the voluntary sector through which associations and volunteers can exchange spaces, equipment, training courses and professional advice with each other for free. This is a virtuous circle that uses resources in a sustainable way and multiplies their positive impact on the community. In Gluo’s world one is not worth one, if shared it is worth 10! And it can also be worth 100 or 1000, it just depends on how many times something is shared!

#VolontariDigitali

#VolontariDigitali by CeSVoP is our favorite project in Gluo.org. The idea is simple: improving digital skills in volunteers with an online monthly lesson, making participants also able to transfer these competences to other people. During Covid 19 pandemic the project became successful among youngsters who had the chance to feel really useful in their communities even if stucked at home. From Sicily it became a national project able to engage citizens from all ages and backgrounds!

Future Young Talent

“Process to create, create to process: becoming a team even if we are strangers.”

We support Future Young Talent - FYT project by the artist Francesca Martini (aka MateteMartini). FYT is a workshop program with an attention to painting, abstraction, design, and architecture. This project tries to give youngsters notions to understand, with a critic focus, art design and architecture but also a method to design: this is a tool for art, work and every day life.

Experience D for Design Lab by FYT, hosted by Italian Pavillion at EXPO DUBAI 2020: watch the recorded activity sessions!

Urban Art

Urban art is not only and aesthetic element that enhances the places of a city and generates new points of tourist, cultural and social interest but it is, above all, a tool for social aggregation and integration if carried out as a shared planning with citizenship.

Our projects till nowadays were able to involve also elderly people and youth making them feel active and important parts of the community.

We worked with several artists such as Alina Vergnano (you can admire her work Whispers in the picture), Marta Lorenzon, Mattia Botta and Mattia Lullini.

Nubi. A tribute to Pier Paolo Pasolini by Marco Brosolo

“You got to be serious, but you don’t have to say it nor even seem it”― Pier Paolo Pasolini

This artistical and musical project - recorded at Artesuono (Udine) and TheBubble (Berlin), mixed at TheBubble (Berlin), mastered at Trixx Tonstudio (Berlin) - was inspired both by Pasolini’s lyrics and movie dialogues and his interviews from the ‘60s and ‘70s and it’s trying to bring his message also via pop music. This album was performed live in Casarsa and Sacile in 2022 thanks to Fondazione Friuli.

Swartz Studio Experience

“What is the most important thing you could be working on in the world right now? …And if you’re not working on that, why aren’t you?”― Aaron Swartz

For two years, before Covid 19 pandemia, we shared our head office with some citizens who were seeking for cultural inputs, and since they couldn’t find any, they decided to bring by themselves in town what they were needing. They were able to organize concerts, screenings, conferences and courses only by crowdfunding their initiatives as Swartz Studio collective. It was a very fertile season that lead others to do the same in other places, such as Il ballo della scrivania in Pordenone, which later became B-The Bunker a place for indie/d.i.y. arts.
