ITALIA DOCET | Laboratorium brings you an Open Structure model - work in progress, with a global and social identity, where the source of inspiration is Raffaello Sanzio’s cartoon of the “School of Athens”. Interpreted as a base – motherboard, it lends itself to a variety of interpretations, by allowing contemporary artists from around the world to add a modern-day interpretation of distinctive elements: the same elements, different artists, other audiences.


The core element of ITALIA DOCET | Laboratorium programme is the free movement of ideas of the Participants in relation to a humanistic common base, which becomes osmotic in relation to the subjective viewpoints and interchanges the dialogue with the spectators.

The Project led by Leonardo Rotatori (advisors Valentina Fasan and Anshu Bahanda) has developed a method capable of presenting the transmission of experiences from one system to another in a cosmopolitan environment. 

It has an immersive style of presentation, designed to emphasize the visual and audio elements of the work by placing the audience at the center of a continuous choral performance. The voices of the main characters speak individually or blend into a choral magma, depending on the viewer’s position within a space. 

An initial group of Participants, Italian and foreign artists - 5 of whom are Aabru Art artists (for more Information on these artists, contact Aabru Art on art@aabru.co.uk), will present their own personal form of expression, demonstrating versatility, openness, the capacity for dialogue and a dialectical approach, which is then able to generate a great movement of ideas gathered from different environments – ideas that today, as in the past, are able to meet and be exchanged, in this way encouraging comparisons and dialogues relevant to civil society. 

Venue: Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto, Fondamenta Duodo o Barbarigo, San Marco 2504, Venice
