Fili invisibili. Tracciando storie dentro San Vittore

Off Campus San Vittore explores the relationship between prison and city

May 9-11-12, Casa Circondariale Francesco di Cataldo (Carcere di San Vittore), Piazza Filangieri 2, Milan

The event is organized by the “Laboratorio carcere” research group of the Politecnico di Milano (Department of Design and Department of Architecture and Urban Studies), in collaboration with the Legal Desk of Università Bocconi, active at Off Campus San Vittore.

This exhibition (open to the public upon registration) displays the results of StoryLab, a workshop of participatory storytelling that explores the imaginaries of people detained in the “Giovani Adulti / Young Adults” section. A collection of fragments of personal stories, in the form of images and words, highlights the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Italian Constitution, inviting the visitor to take a new look at the theme of detention, shifting of our thinking as citizens from the polarity ‘us and them’ to ‘us’.
