Milan, Italy



Atto Primo is the first manifestation of a Republic, a long-term project by Cohabitation Strategies and Landscape Choreography with the support of MARE Culturale Milano. Atto Primo took place Sunday, September 28th, 2014 during the Quarto Cagnino party, a neighbourhood situated in the periphery of Milan (IT). In recent months MARE Culturale Milano commissioned to Cohabitation Strategies and Landscape Choreography the development of a strategy to interrelate with the neighbourhood. What emerged was a dense dialogue with citizens, cultural actors, associations and local organisations. Atto Primo is composed by three main urban actions: The production of a neighbourhood flag composed by symbols representing the local initiatives or individuals; a parade of urban re-appropriation choreographed by Balletto Civile; a collectively built pavilion with the help of constructLab. It is the beginning of an exercise of collective imagination and the attempt to define new boundaries in the perception of the problems and potentials of one of the most diverse areas of the city, the Zona 7. Atto Primo is the first manifestation of the collaboration between MARE Culturale Milano and the city. The project is part of a larger program of actions, City on The Move, in the Zona 7 of Milan – where MARE Culturale Milano is situated. You can find more information here.
