Coming up soon, the second edition of Demanio Marittimo.KM-278 will invade the Adriatic coast for 12 hours of debates, readings, lectures, films, music and wine tastings, all within one night.
The event, which combines the genius loci of the Adriatic area and the Region of Marche with the themes and characters of global architecture, will take place on July 27, 2012, from dusk till dawn, in Marzocca (Ancona), and will tell arts and projects of architecture and design, performance and installations, music, literature and entertainment.
Curated by Cristiana Colli and Pippo Ciorra, promoted by the magazine Mappe (published by Gagliardini editore), and with the collaboration of MAXXI, the Marche Region and the Municipality of Senigallia, Demanio Marittimo.KM-278 also involved DROME, not only as media partners, but inviting it to take care of the Sound Lounge: the featuring guest will be the visual artist and musician DJ Gunnetto who, after the memorable performance at the Supernatural Pic Nic, is surely going to sign a fascinating intervention.
Moreover, during the nighttime, our chief editor Rosanna Gangemi will be attending a talk on the issue of architectural quality – from local to global -, within a debate about the promotion and development through the specialized publishing.
Mindful of the Cahiers de Cusine, the special guest will be the international and creative chef Moreno Cedroni, who will delight the palates with a superlative culinary experience, inspired to the DROME’s current issue topic, Catastrophe, while the Madonnina del Pescatore, his restaurant, watching on the beach, just beyond.
Born in 2011, the format brings together research and ideas about the territory, with the most interesting current topics of architecture and arts, starting from the Adriatic as a horizon of comparison: “The beach is a geographical area that better than any other embodies the contemporary understanding of public space – tell the curators -, temporary, flexible and inclusive, mutant from day to night, both generic and thematic, traditional and unusual.
During the evening, the winning construction projects of the competition held by the organization for young graduates of the most important Italian universities will be presented, with the aim to offer to these budding designers the opportunity to compete, even before entering in the world of work, with a considerable achievement.
Cuddled by the sea breeze, a new opportunity to confront each other with the unknown ramifications of the emerging generations.
