The ‘3CODESIGN’ exhibition opens in Tunis

Categories: Culture and creativity -Design and Architecture
An exhibition to raise awareness for waste becoming raw materials again.

The Italian Embassy in Tunis and the Italian Cultural Institute inaugurated the ‘3CODESIGN_3R_Ridurre_Riciclare_Riutilizzare’ exhibition on 23 June at the Cité des Sciences. Turning waste back into raw materials, placing recycling and reuse at the basis of a circular economy that knows how to go beyond waste and squandering. These are some of the connotative traits of that increasingly marked trend in new Italian design that goes by the name of Ecodesign and whose primary objective is to contribute to the construction of a new ecology of the artificial.

The exhibition aims to offer a concise but also sufficiently paradigmatic overview of how Italian design is experimenting with a real inversion of the production methods and design strategies applied during the 20th century, in accordance with the new requirements of environmental sustainability. Rethinking design and production in function not only of environmental sustainability, but also of a new sociality based on sharing, responsibility and respect for future generations.

The Cité des Sciences, which operates under the aegis of the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Research, is certainly the most appropriate place to promote this exhibition – especially to the younger generations – which focuses on the environment and the role that new technologies can play in the virtuous process of reusing and recycling raw materials. The director of the Cité des Sciences, Prof. Fethi Zaghrouba, university lecturer and specialist in energy research and environmental technologies, emphasised the importance of raising young people’s awareness of responsible resource consumption.

The exhibition was also an opportunity to present projects by young local artists working on ecodesign.

The Italian Ambassador in Tunis, Lorenzo Fanara, opened the exhibition and gave an interview on Tunisian national television for the occasion. Many students, architects and specialists in the sector were present.

For the occasion, a film was made on the assembly phases of the exhibition with a detailed intervention by the curator architect Silvana Annicchiarico, which can be watched at this link.
