Quem somos

MISSÃO

Forgotten é um projecto que nasceu, em 2015, da exigência de valorizar o patrimonio arquitectónico contemporâneo da cidade de Roma, através da arte urbana.
Reconhecendo que algumas categorias de edifícios correm o risco de serem “esquecidas” pelo cidadão que já não reconhece a sua centralidade social, cultural e urbana, o objetivo do projeto é chamar a atenção para certos tipos de edifícios – considerados de alto potencial de qualidade – através de intervenções artísticas específicas, acompanhadas de uma série de iniciativas voltadas para a participação ativa dos cidadãos.

A NOSSA IDEIA 

Forgotten wants to awake the citizens’ civic consciousness. Forgotten events are developed collaborating with a network of local associations and various actors operating in the area. At the same time, Forgotten is part of an international network of partners, which makes it a multicultural, widely echoed project that improves mutual growth through exchanging.
The project is experimental because it brings urban art in the city center and it doesn’t focus on a single area but on the whole city, unlike all those projects that uses street art to redevelop the outskirts. Unlike many street art festivals, Forgotten Project selects the artists by focusing each edition on a specific country, in order to delve into the artistic scene of that country and compare it to Italy.

 

QUEM SOMOS

Forgotten (still) exists thanks to its crazy, kamikaze volunteers. The idea was born in front of a beer shared between two friends. Today, we are nine. Tomorrow, who knows…
