Bouquet at Schiavone Square in Milan
A non-hidden place, which becomes a new place. Serena Confalonieri brings her inspiration to the outskirts of Milan , in Piazza Schiavone, a crossroads between the districts of Bovisa, Dergano and Affori, with an urban redevelopment that becomes permanent. Her project is part of a series of permanent tactical urban planning initiatives promoted by RUFA, Scuola Politecnica del Design and Repubblica del Design, in a logic of scalability and circularity of training models and interaction with local communities. A tribute to the different cultures that live in the neighborhood, Serena, with her students of the Visual Design course at the Scuola Politecnica di Design, has designed a graphic bouquet of shapes that recalls the multiculturalism of the area. The different flowers are symbols of the different nationalities of the area, from the rose for Morocco to the tulip for Turkey, from the lotus flower for China, Sri Lanka and Egypt, to the marigold for Ukraine… after the Quarto Oggiaro car park and the mural of Città Studi in Milan and the Flores Leves installation in Fasano, Serena Confalonieri is now the master of happy urban redevelopment.
