NABA is taking part to FuoriSalone 2021 within the event-exhibition Interni Creative Connections held from the 4th to the 19th of September at Ca' Granda of the University of Milan, with free access allowed only to those who present the Green Pass together with an identification document. The exhibition is a celebration of the 30th anniversary of FuoriSalone, created in 1990 by Gilda Bojardi, INTERNI’s director, and born to activate and develop connections and relations.

Reclaiming the past and becoming aware of creative processes, NABA will present an installation that dialogues with the spaces of the University of Milan: among vaults and columns insinuates a different colonnade. The students of the Academy’s BA in Design, under the supervision of Claudio Larcher, NABA Design Area Leader, and Sara Ricciardi, NABA lecturer, and with the contribution of Manal Abu Monassar, NABA Academic Assistant, have designed "High Intensity Design Training - Training with the own past", an interactive installation that reclaims the archetype element of the surrounding architecture. The central structure will recall a column as an architectural element that, visually divided into capital, shaft, and base, becomes soft and incites to action, turning into a punching bag-like training tool to hit, dodge, hug. The supporting frame will recall the vaults of the hosting architecture, while the background will show unprecedented buildings where columns are erased to prepare to a new re-writing.

By reclaiming and re-interpreting the themes of awareness and care taking, in the framework of Interni Creative Connections, NABA students Luca Arrostuto, Allegra Virginia Caneva, Giulia Colombo, Lorenzo Costantini, Elisa Frau, Gianni Iraci, Marilea Liantonio, Adelasia Maggi, Francesca Marciano, Erika Montanaro, Francesca Novaro, Beatrice Penati, Ivan Raimondi, Michele Rizzoli, and Chiara Teneggi have been indeed engaged in training, that invited them to carefully look at the past in order to become aware of the responsibility that rests on creativity as a necessary tool to re-write and re-design the complex system of relationships and connections in the contemporary world.
