Cepol square, Rovigo

farHe is a project by a network of informal groups and associations in Rovigo, brought together by an interest in the public space, that organises activities to re-appropriate living places through cultural moments, reactivating the participation and responsibility of citizens. The piazza within the Cepol3 complex in the Commenda Est district is the location chosen by farHe for these activities. The collaboration with artists Luca Luciano and Cosimo Veneziano of Progetto Diogene in Turin gave rise to Futura, a modular artwork in Piazza Cepol that can be used as a platform, a seat, a structure for projections or a sign. The combination of metal elements that slot together and wooden bases provide the framework for the game Tangram; while large stencils bear written words inviting the citizens to occupy urban spaces, striking a balance between reality and imagination.
