At the beginning of the last century it was customary to allocate a portion of the new popular buildings to art studies. Among the many popular studios built by the IACP (Autonomous Institute of Popular Homes) in those years in the Trionfale district, Studio Pisani is the only atelier still active. The Studio, together with the second lot, was completed in 1922 by the hand of the architect Innocenzo Sabbatini. The architectural work was of great value not only for its stylistic originality but because it witnessed an enlightened political design. With this social housing project, in fact, the State supported the work of artists and created for them a physical and cultural space of existence. “An existence that today we feel in danger, art, no longer included in necessity, is exiled, denied and abandoned among what is superfluous. We therefore open the studio to the city, to offer a fragment of forgotten history, a utopia, an opportunity to restore that “hand-to-hand” interrupted between the city and its artists. ” (Studio Pisani).
As part of the CORPO A CORPO open studios Saturday 30 October 2021 Monica Pennazzi presents her sound sculpture Archeufonia with a live performance by Monica Pennazzi and Ivan Macera (double intervention 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm).
“In my artistic career – writes the artist – the musicality of form has always been central, therefore, sound sculpture has been a natural landing for me. The attempt at combustion between plastic art and sound has given rise to an experiment that goes beyond the limits of an expressive form based on time: sound in space. All we have to do is touch, pinch, strike the sculpture to bring out the sounds as a physical manipulation material to free the spirit.”
