Luca Trevisani and Giovanni Anceschi - one a visual artist and the other a major theorist and italian designer - are the pair of authors invited to conduct a workshop entitled Ambienti plurali, partiture somatiche e frutta di stagione (Plural environments, somatic scores and seasonal fruit). Accademie Eventuali (Possible Academies) is a new training project for students from italian academies, consisting of a series of workshops and culminating in an exhibition scheduled to coincide with the most important cultural events of the city of Bologna. To facilitate the blending of language and experience, Accademie Eventuali has engaged two renowned artists from different disciplines.

Giovanni Anceschi, founder of Gruppo T (Tempo), was a leading player in Kinetic and Programmed Art (with Bruno Munari) and in the international movement, Nouvelles Tendences in the sixties. In the design field, Anceschi’s principal themes are linked to ongoing processes, from corporal identity to exhibition design, from computer graphics to interaction design. He works both in Italy and abroad as a historian and theorist and as an organizer in multimodality. Emeritus professor of IUAV/Faculty of Design and Arts in Venice University and DAMS (Drama, Art and Music Studies) in Bologna, he has taught design theory and basic design. He is coordinator of the Doctorate in Design. In 2011 he created an application for Apple’s iPhone (innovetempi, App Store) an interactive work of art which was first conceived as a programmed graphics design in the sixties. Since 2000, the ground-breaking value of Kinetic and Programmed art, and of Gruppo T in particular, has been recognized at an international level. In Italy in 2005 the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome inaugurated the exhibition Gli ambienti del gruppo T: le origini dell’arte interattiva, and an entire section of the Museo del ‘900 in Milan is dedicated to the places and work of Gruppo T.

Luca Trevisani is one of the most internationally acclaimed young Italian artists. He has shown his work in numerous locations, including: Maxxi Rome, Macro Rome, Magasin Grenoble, Mart Rovereto, Venice Biennale of Architecture, Manifesta7, Museion Bolzano, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Daimler Kunstsammlung Berlin, CCA Antratx Mallorca, Giò Marconi Milan, Pinksummer Genoa, MAMbo Bologna, Mehdi Chouakri Berlin, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Turin. He has won various awards and acknowledgements including the Furla award for art (2007), the Acacia award (2008), and the New York award (2009). He has published two books, The effort took its tools (Argobooks, Berlin 2008) and Luca Trevisani (Silvana editoriale, Milan 2009), and articles for national and international magazines. Since 2010 he has run the editorial platform His sculpture surrenders itself to the wear and tear of things, to material life, in an ongoing definition of identity and its limits.
