Landscape in a Box is promoted by the ATRIUM Association, created in collaboration with Deina ASP, and supported by the Region Emilia-Romagna and the municipalities of Bertinoro and Cesenatico.
The objective of the project is to explore the complexities of ATRIUM’s dissonant heritage within an approach of co-construction, involving three groups of students from different secondary schools in Forlì, Cesenatico and Bertinoro. This educational experience aims at increasing the student’s ability to critically analyse fascism and understand how architecture was a fundamental instrument of education and propaganda used by the regime. By reinterpreting symbols left in the urban landscape by the Fascist regime, the students created three “Landscapes in a Box” dedicated to specific parts of the ATRIUM heritage.
