The ‘3CODESIGN’ exhibition arrives in Libya

Categories: Culture and creativity -Visual Arts -Design and Architecture
3R_Ridurre_Riciclare_Riutilizzare continues its tour around the world.

On Monday 24 October, the travelling exhibition 3CODESGIN, promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and curated by architect Silvana Annicchiarico, opened in Tripoli at the Museum of Libya.  The exhibition will remain open to the public until 31 October.

After a long tour around the world, involving various countries including China, Qatar, Canada, the United States, Tunisia and Estonia, the exhibition has arrived in Tripoli, Libya, and welcomed with great enthusiasm by the capital’s academics and artists.  After Tripoli, the exhibition will travel to Benghazi in collaboration with the local Italian Consulate General.

The event is organised by the Italian Embassy in Tripoli, in collaboration with the Department of Antiquities of Libya (DoA), and is dedicated to designer recycling and the conception and creation of objects using recycled materials, a sector in which Italy is global leader. The exhibition, presented by Prof. Steita Senussi from the University of Benghazi, showcases fifty objects that use recycling production technologies and recycled materials, conceived by emerging young Italian designers and supported by big names,  to illustrate how waste can be recovered as raw materials in a circular economy that successfully overcomes the problem.

It is a very important initiative to bring to the attention of the people of Libya not only Italian design but also issues of sustainability and circular economy

– said the Italian Ambassador, Giuseppe Buccino Grimaldo.

The chosen site is one of Tripoli’s most beautiful historic buildings and the medium – design – represents a universal language and one of Italy’s most valuable and valued exports in the world.

The event, which comes only a few days after the recent success of the 1st Edition of the Italian-Libyan Friendship Day (Tripoli, 15 October) marks another step forward for the Italian Embassy, together with its Libyan partners, to strengthen cultural cooperation between the two countries, to encourage the study of the Italian language and culture in different learning contexts, to guarantee adequate training of Libyan Italian-language teachers and to promote the widest possible offering of scholarships by the Italian government for Libyan students who wish to study in Italy. All of this is in light of the complete reopening of the Italian Cultural Institute and the full resumption of its activities.
