A training opportunity to learn how to build a system and transfer cultural heritage into a design project: NABA and the Archivio Clemen Parrocchetti organised a three-day workshop at the Borgo Adorno Castle. From May 25 to 27, the MA in Textile Design students met Clemen Parrocchetti's work and have worked in the environment inspiring it.

The Textile Design workshop and the Archivio Clemen Parrocchetti

The Borgo Adorno Castle stands in Cantalupo Ligure, overlooking the Borbera Valley. In the second half of the 20th Century, it was the home and studio of Clemen Parrocchetti - a well-known Italian artist and painter, an ambassador of feminist instances. Today, her intellectual and artistic effort is tangible at the same castle. During the three-day workshop, the students immersed themselves in that dimension, took advantage of the studio technologies and discovered local materials.

The workshop was born from an innovative approach which aims to professionalise the practice and the cultural studies of design by integrating its techniques and methodology with art. The process focuses on theoretical skills and tools based on design thinking. It follows academic practices related to craftsmanship and cultural and territorial heritage.

This experience was possible thanks to the contribution of Colomba Leddi (Fashion Design Area Leader), Alessandro Manzi (NABA lecturer), Luca Belotti (Masters of Arts in Fashion Design Area Course Leader), Viola Parrocchetti (NABA lecturer) and Sara Khalilnejad (Fashion Design Area Academic Assistant).
