LANDing in Verbania

LANDing, in its original idea, was born from the desire to land in unknown territories, to explore the natural and human landscape, traditions, traces of history with the eyes of those who encounter a new place for the first time and with the intention of looking in an unusual way at themselves and the territory they explore, to reflect on the relationship with the elsewhere and the sense of the encounter in a relational dynamic in which the other and the elsewhere are always present inside and outside of us. In this edition, which enthusiastically embraces the wandering philosophy of Walk Cross, the exploration will be inspired by the “dérive”, a radical practice of rehousing and crossing spaces conceived by Guy Debord, and will aim to establish new and unusual relationships with those territories, urban and natural, that we normally cross.
