The Compagnia has always paid attention to evolutions and new trends in the cultural scene, and has now decided to renew its commitment to this by setting up a new operational department as a go-between for groundbreaking projects and active subjects in the cultural field. This innovation has various viewpoints and layers: originality in expression and language used, a theme of new approaches regarding the relationship between culture and society, special attention to the economic and productive side of culture. The four main branches of the Department’s activity are the consequence of this way of looking at cultural innovation.
To this end the Compagnia operates through the analysis and evaluation of spontaneously presented projects, publishing calls for proposals and guidelines specifically on certain themes, creating and promoting directly managed operative projects. In carrying out the various areas of intervention we would like to safeguard a connection – both strategic and administrative – between the more institutional actors and the more independent ones of the territory, in the knowledge that only group action, shared among all the subjects, can make a real impact in the relevant context.
From 22nd September to 18th March at Palazzo dell'Accademia delle Scienze, Turin.
