biennale dello stretto boe culturali
director – alfonso femia
The project starts from a search for the historical, geographical and cultural roots of the Strait and takes up its main characteristics, the currents and the winds, to give life to a new way of making culture, of enhancing the territories of Sicily and Calabria and their identities. Three types of ‘giant buoys’, anchors of culture, let themselves be carried by the waves and winds of the Strait, hosting exhibitions, cultural activities, shows and exhibitions in their interior. Each capsule is wrapped in a shell of recycled steel and recycled plastic panels, alternating with photovoltaic panels. A visionary project that combines a cultural mission to enhance the value of two lands rich in history and art, and an ecological mission to enhance the waters of the Strait.
