Fondazione Ermanno Casoli (FEC) and Sole 24 Ore Business School confirm their collaboration for the fifth year in a row, through a new E-STRAORDINARIO educational program event. This will take place on Thursday, November 10th with the workshop Esercizi di stile#2 by artist Diego Marcon – curated by FEC art director Marcello Smarrelli – in collaboration with the education and human resources development specialist Luca Varvelli.

The workshop is directed to 34 students from the Sole 24 Ore Master in Economics and Art and Culture Management. It will be held in Milan at Pirelli HangarBicocca, which is an international reference institution for contemporary art. The shared goal is fostering contemporary art as a valuable educational and methodological tool for new professionals that can develop and add value to the Italian art “system”.

Artist Diego Marcon will be the main character of Esercizi di stile#2, which is the workshop title. This is a writing experiment that follows the one carried out in Fabriano in 2015 with a group of entrepreneurs from the Marche region. Participants will be inspired by the homonymous book by and they will be provided with a “basic anecdote” starting from which the will develop three variations related to the linguistic register, the literary genre and the text support. Participants – all Master’s students – will be working in groups; once the work is finished, every contribution will be included in an eBook, an artist book that will be handed out to participants. This project is perfectly in line with Diego Marcon’s poetics, which constantly questions the notions of reality and realism, and investigates the image and language status in the mass media era.
