Het kunstwerk

Cuore di Napoli is een ‘city brand’. Het is een project van studenten van de Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli, de kunstacademie van Napels. Deze studenten volgen de opleiding nieuwe technologie en gebruiken de stad als hun laboratorium.

#CuorediNapoli is een dynamisch kunstwerk dat mensen met plekken laat verbinden. Dit kan een buurtfeest zijn of juist het vragen van aandacht voor een imperfectie. Dit laatste klinkt misschien wat abstract maar zie hieronder een aantal voorbeelden:

7. What is the most memorable moment of #cuoredinapoli so far?
There are 200 people working behind #CUOREDINAPOLI, and everyone of us have a memorable moment, for example: the first Cuore installation at the harbour station that had a lot of technical problems; the lady who during the opera event hosted the flow of people inside her house, offering various quantities of food, despite the fact that in the previous days she had not shown any sign of participation before the opera event.

We try to underline the need and the presence of a widespread feeling that leads people to come together in giving shape and substance to the relationships that already exist but that are sometimes pushed aside, or not highlighted enough.
