The project installation is physically visible in the Borgo district and Virtually in Tor Bella Monaca, as a sign of brotherhood/ twinning between the districts and suburbs of Rome.
4finestre (4 windows) will take place in Borgo Pio, 125 headquarters of Art Exhibition Link from May 21st to 23rd. During the IPER Festival delle Periferie (Festival of the Suburbs), 4 sheets, both physical and augmented reality, will be displayed on the facade of the building as a sign of brotherhood/ twinning between districts and suburbs of Rome. The districts and suburbs are related through a symbol: the coat of arms. The creation of these coats of arms for the suburbs is a symbolic gesture with which the suburbs claim their history and their personality. For this reason, the artists Francesca Fini, Laura Mega, Paola Romoli Venturi, Maria Angeles Vila Tortosa have designed and created a coat of arms for Tor Bella Monaca through a virtual, real, performative, and sound sheet.
Walking on Borgo Pio it will be possible to see the ‘real’ installation, while by downloading the ARTIVIVE application it’s possible to see:
– ‘FLOW’ by Francesca Fini, that comes to life on the façade of the building in Augmented Reality
– the performance ‘ L’ORTICA DI TOR BELLA MONACA’ by Maria Angeles Vila Tortosa
– the artwork ‘ TOR BELLA MONACA R_ESISTE’ by Laura Mega
– the audio of the ‘STEMMA STORNELLATO’ by Paola Romoli Venturi. The stornello gives voice to the STEMMA (coat of arms) and singing it becomes a participatory performance. How to get involved in the CALL ‘CANTARE LO STORNELLO’ (singing the STORNELLO): You can contact us on the FB page 4finestre or via email firstname.lastname@example.org asking the stornello Lyrics, then look out of your window and sing/ recite the words making a video or a FB video to post on the FB 4finestre page.
From May 21st to 23rd the 4finestre video, included with the interviews, the set-up, and the performances of the 4 artists, will be visible online on the IPER portal, Festival delle Periferie di Roma (Festival of Suburbs in Rome).
