Red Passion Party by Progetto Itaca Firenze

Red Passion Party by Progetto Itaca Firenze

Progetto Itaca Firenze is a Volunteer Association,  founded in 2011 who operates in mental health care. We are part of the WORLD MOVEMENT that brings a new positive vision for all people suffering from psychiatric disorders. Our message of hope is based on the concept that even the person with a serious psychiatric illness has resources that can be exploited to find a more regular and independent life. Mental illness has a biological nature and can now be cured and we try to educate the public and the media to help end the stigma surrounding mental illness and promote awareness.

To raise funds for  the activities we offer, our young volunteers organize events like the one of the 13st of july in Forte dei Marmi.

Did you know mental illness is more prevalent than cancer, diabetes or heart disease?

By 2020, behavioral health disorders will be the #1 cause of disability worldwide, surpassing all other illnesses.

We offer free rehabilitation services for young people suffering from mental disorders and family support initiatives, as well as information and prevention projects. Our major project is the Clubhouse. Club Itaca is first and foremost a community of young people with major psychic illness who enter the Center as Members. Much more than simply a program, or a social service, a clubhouse is most importantly a community of people who are working together toward a common goal. Through participation in  Club Itaca people are given the opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendships, family, important work, employment, education, and to access the services and supports they may individually need. Club Itaca is a restorative environment for people who have had their lives drastically disrupted, and need the support of others who believe that recovery from mental illness is possible for all. When "I" is replaced with "We", mental illness becomes wellness. Clubhouses are a powerful demonstration of the fact that people with mental illness can and do lead normal, productive lives.

Secrets and Scandals of The Archives Episode III

Culture and Cocktail episode 3 with Lynn Catterson is happening this June!

Bardini & Co:  The Art of Staged Discoveries. 

Nearing the turn of the century, and the rapid rise of the modern art market, provenance came to replace connoisseurship as the leading indicator of authenticity.  Adept at negotiating changing tides, Bardini evolved strategies to evoke convincing provenance, from fake certificates of authenticity, to planting objects in villas and chapels so that they might be discovered "in situ."

Thursday, June 14th 

Culture: 6:30PM

Free for members. 
Non-members may pay a 15€ drop in fee, or sign up for membership!

Luce in Scatola di Lucia Baldini
Jun
14
to Jul 30

Luce in Scatola di Lucia Baldini

"Luce In scatola" is the continuation of a project that Lucia Baldini developed in 2010 through an installation called "Spacetime Extensions". It is a visual and photographic path that develops through the conversion of images into three-dimensional supports; therefore, photography loses its bidimensionality to become three-dimensional. This project was developed through video installations, "mirror boxes", boxes "guides to get lost", alphabets, artist's books and glass sandwiches.

In this exhibition, the study of "canned light" comes from images created using a smartphone, which in some ways is already a "light in box" as the image is displayed through a backlit monitor and then shown through a new backlit box: a "lightbox". The image remains two-dimensional, but is crossed by a light that can vary in intensity and consequently can give the possibility to read fully or partially the subject represented.

In this section of "canned light" hosted by our Multiverse brand coworking in Via del Porcellana 59 red in Florence, Lucia Baldini plays on the same narrative line that unfolds on three elements: the number 2, subjects close together but isolated from their own context and intertwining.
The journey of experimentation continues with new supports and visual languages.
