Radio Olimpia, Bomba libera tutt!, a playing field and mobile radio station hosted by a California camper, is coming to Milan.
On the playing field, set up in the new square in Via Toce in the Isola district, a series of competitions will take place in which the public, divided into teams, will challenge each other in an unprecedented form of contemporary performing Olympics.
All the games are inspired by performances by well-known and lesser-known artists.
The disciplines will be introduced live from the playing field, and the competitions will be accompanied and refereed. Each action will be commented on in the radio commentary and winners and losers will be presented.
There will be in-depth content on the performances of the artists mentioned and on the themes referred to in the games: public space, the moment of celebration, the game, non-productive time, in a succession of challenges, interviews with “special guests” and the participants who bring the frequencies in the squares of Radio Olimpia, Bomba Libera tutti, to life!

Winner Project OPEN call /// CONTEMPORARY [URBAN] CREATION 2019 – new production
“The first man who, having fenced a piece of land, thought to say ‘this is mine’ and found people stupid enough to believe him, was the true founder of civil society. How many crimes, how many wars, how many murders, how many miseries and errors he would have spared mankind” (J.J. Russeau, Origin of Inequality, 1754).
Ti voglio un bene pubblico is an urban game that reflects on dividing infrastructures such as gates, walls, fences. So much of what surrounds us is made of walls and fences; understanding their meaning, from time to time, is a necessary civic practice. It is significant to note that the article of the civil code that regulates the construction of fences to secure private property is called ‘ius escludendi alios’: to determine one’s own by excluding the other.
When does a wall stop protecting and start dividing, segregating and excluding? And when a public space is fenced off and access to it is restricted, how much of that public space remains? When a wall is put up, how much of what is behind it can we not know?

As part of this research, she accompanies the theoretical study to the realization of actions such as: “We want to become architecture” and “Go with the flow” (Poland, 2014), the choreographed construction of “Pompenpurg Park” (Rotterdam, Architecture Biennale 2014), “Zeno’s second Paradox” (Milan, 2016), “Enough Space for the Tenderest of Attentions” (project for the Dance Biennale 2016).
