European cities are growing by the day. They are incorporating the suburbs and becoming metropolises. They are soaring into the sky with important new architectural experiments. They are the driving forces behind economic, social and cultural development, privileged meeting places, incubators of innovation and conflict. They are magnets for immigrants and anyone in search of change. Fast, dynamic, pulsating, but also inhuman, stressful, complex. Increasingly, they tend to lose their specific traits and become confused and similar. Milan is no different. Increasingly innovative, increasingly European, increasingly metropolitan. And, in our opinion, increasingly beautiful.
Focus Urban is therefore a tribute to our city and, at the same time, a form of research, a questioning of its limits and potential. Together with the artists involved, we will try to rediscover it and retell it, bringing its inhabitants onto the stage, penetrating its intimacy with performances in private homes, inhabiting places of transit such as hotels, and reinterpreting public space with Willi Dorner’s performers.
