NABA and MACRO explore the educational contribution of Cinzia Ruggeri - artist, stylist, designer and NABA lecturer who passed away in 2019. Two events will take place at MACRO Museum in Rome: the "Sogni cuciti a mano" talk on May 4 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM; the "From Foot to Head" workshop on May 6, from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, and on May 7, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Both events are part of the public programme related to the anthological exhibition "Cinzia Says...", which will be open until August 26.
Beyond the exhibition at MACRO, the public programme on Cinzia Ruggeri
"Sogni cuciti a mano" is a talk curated by Nicoletta Morozzi (NABA Fashion Design Advisor) and NABA Fashion Design Area Lecturers Mariuccia Casadio and Nicola Pecoraro. During the event, they will focus on Cinzia Ruggeri’s teaching experience and will look at the archive material collected when she was a Lecturer of the Academy. The talk is a free complement to workshop activities.
"From Foot to Head" comes from the collaboration between NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti and the Department for Preventive Education of MACRO. It is an opportunity to explore further the artist's teaching methodology with Nicola Pecoraro. The immersive visit to the exhibition "Cinzia Says..." and the development of the visual story of her work will be the experience core. The workshop is open to undergraduates or recently graduated students from Italian or abroad Academies and Universities. Participants are selected through a free of charge open call. The task is a narrative and/or visual re-interpretation of what Cinzia Ruggeri used to ask her students: "to think of a possible imprint that contains the personality of their alter ego". Participation in the workshops is, once again, free of charge.
