Since 2006 the Secretary General of the Council of Europe has granted his patronage to THE MUSEUMS AT NIGHT which takes place concurrently in the signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention.

The “Museums at night” born in 2005 thanks to an idea of Ministero della Cultura e della Comunicazione francese.

Museums in Europe will be opening late and many will be staging special events; from tours, screenings and debates, to music, dancing and ghost hunts.

For this 5ht edition of the “Museums at night”, the exibition spaces of the Museum Omero will display Tactile Tables, in different and various sizes, which will suggest visitors to complete the Contact-Actions (“Contattilazioni”), a special and inusual abstract travel of hands (like declaimed from Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in his “Manifesto del Tattilismo”). The tactile suggestions given by the Tables will be enriched and completed with “sound collages”. The visitors will be able to give life to an exciting rich aesthetic perceptive action/ full of stimuli and suggestions.

Tactile creative workshop: using material of miscellaneous type, the pupils will be able to create small tactile tables interpreted with own sensibility.

The European Programma LLP-ERASMUS (life- long- learning programme) has approved the project IP (intensive program) conceived by Academy of fine arts of Macerata, titled TC-TC “Terra Cotta- Terra Cruda”, colore, texture, superficie.

This project, coordinated and encouraged by Prof.Teresa Marasca, is the first project approved to an Italian Academy of fine arts.

In this activity are involved three Parners Institutes:

  • Salford (United Kingdom)

The project

The cultural background of this project is rural landscape – raw earth- and urban landscape –fired earth- in the speciphic geographic locations of the three Institutes involved:
Macerata, Cluj-Napoca and Salford.
The focus of the project is enquiry into colour, texture and surfaces of the landscape. Materials and technologies relevant to natural and local sources help determine the invention of the participants. Raw inquiry is the means by which concvepts and ideas are stimulated and is the primary focus of the collaboration.
The goal is to raise student’ awareness of the cultural dimensions of a location and concentrate on the territorial identity of Macerata. The responses to and the aesthetic treatments of the subjects are important to the process of knowledge transfer.

Plan of activities:

-Landscape enquiry (natural and built); its contemporary fascination and stratification of meaning throughout time (various means)
-Manipulation of raw earth (clay); modellinf and searching new hypothesis of shape
-Comprehension of chromatic forms from the terracotta materials of buildings; new chromatic hypothesis
