12th edition of ARTEFATTO | The call is OPEN

Il Comune di Trieste – Area Educazione, Scuola, Cultura e Sport – avvia il progetto biennale denominato CHROMOPOLIS_la città del futuro, che sostiene la creatività dei giovani 18/30 attraverso i linguaggi dell’Arte Urbana.

Attraverso le azioni di CHROMOPOLIS, il Comune di Trieste si propone di:

– rigenerare alcune aree cittadine [superfici pubbliche e in prospettiva anche private];
– coinvolgere i giovani attivando partenariati con soggetti che operano nel campo della creatività urbana e mobilità giovanile;
– attivare un processo di formazione dei giovani per valorizzare gli aspetti professionalizzanti della creatività under 35;
– contrastare i fenomeni di vandalismo offrendo delle alternative espressive concrete e individuando in modo condiviso muri destinati alla libera creatività;
– valorizzare la città di Trieste dal punto di vista turistico attraverso la creazione di un percorso che arricchisca gli spazi urbani.

In questa cornice, una delle azioni di maggiore impatto è la 12.a edizione di ARTEFATTO, progetto curato dal PAG – Progetto Area Giovani del Comune di Trieste, affermato a livello internazionale che promuove la creatività e la mobilità di giovani artisti.
La 12.a edizione di ARTEFATTO, denominata SeetheSea, si avvarrà della collaborazione e della supervisione dello street artista Davide ERON Salvadei e della direzione artistico organizzativa di Mattia Campo Dall’Orto dell’associazione Macross.

ARTEFATTO fa parte dei network del GAI – Associazione per il Circuito dei Giovani Artisti Italiani_www.giovaniartisti.it, della BJCEM – Association Internationale pour la Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs d’Europe et de la Méditerranée_www.bjcem.org ed è promosso attraverso la piattaforma digitale di INWARD – Osservatorio sulla Creatività Urbana_www.inward.it


The Municipality of Trieste – Department of Education, Schooling, Culture and Sport – is launching the biennial CHROMOPOLIS_the city of the future project, which supports the creativity of young people aged 18/30 using the languages of Urban Art.
Through the actions of CHROMOPOLIS, the Municipality of Trieste proposes to:
– revive a number of urban areas [public and potentially also private areas]
– involve young people by implementing partnerships with players involved in the field of urban creativity and youth mobility;
– activate a youth training process to enhance the aspects of creativity in under 35-year-olds that are potentially career-forming;
– fight against vandalism by offering real alternatives for expression and jointly identifying walls destined for free creativity;
– promote the city of Trieste from the point of view of tourism through the creation of an itinerary that enriches the urban spaces.

In this framework, one of the most important actions is the 12th edition of ARTEFATTO, a project administered by the PAG – Progetto Area Giovani (Youth Projects) of the Municipality of Trieste, which is affirmed at an international level and promotes the creativity and mobility of young artists.
The 12th edition of ARTEFATTO will be called SeetheSea, and will make use of the collaboration and supervision of street artist Davide ERON Salvadei_www.eron.it and of the artistic direction and organisation of Mattia Campo Dall’Orto of Macross association _www.mattiacampodallorto.it.

The Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean between past, present and future

Presentation of project and activities at Artissima 2017

Saturday, November 4, 15.30
@ Meeting Point Artissima, OVAL Lingotto Fiere, Torino

In the framework of Artissima 2017, BJCEM organizes a presentation of its activities to the public in Turin, with a particular focus on the last Biennial held in Tirana and Durres from May 4 to 9. With the support of video and photographic materials, we will remember the extraordinary atmosphere lived in Tirana, with the peaceful invasion of 230 young artists in the city center, the opening of the exhibitions, the beginning of the shows and live performances and the closing in Durres at the city’s archeological museum.

A special reflection will be dedicated to the theme of the Biennale, “HOME”, proposed by the Artistic Director Driant Zeneli, divided into four subthemes: History + Conflict + Dream + Failure = Home. An important concept in a country such as Albania, characterized by an isolated past, and by an extremely fast transition. A geopolitical area where history, conflict, dream and failure constantly cross daily life.
