Campagna Urbana is a collaborative project between artists, activists, scholars, cultural producers, associations and citizens. It aims to open up new possibilities for social and political engagement in the city of Lecce. Through the use of artistic and cultural activities, artists and citizens worked together to reimagine, reclaim and explore their city.
Campagna Urbana developed in the Santa Rosa neighborhood with a series of artistic interventions and public actions. The Urban Actions ranged from collective writing with Kai Zen to the radical campaign with Peter Zuiderwijk, spontaneous creativity with Daniele Pario Perra, painting as radical activism with Nikolay Oleynikov, and performance and improvisation with Ippolito Chiarello on a pink stage.
Through these types of interventions, Campagna Urbana sought to open up disciplinary boundaries and develop new forms of appropriation of the city.
At a time when the economy seems to be the only force for understanding and shaping society, Campagna Urbana had the ultimate goal of challenging the marginalization of culture as an agent of transformation of social relations and of the public imagination in the city of Lecce.
