Palermo, August 31 From an industrial area, one of the most important areas of the twentieth century, to a center of cultural production in Palermo.
Everything is ready for cutting the Averna Spazio Open tape. On August 31, Pavilion 7, known as Spazio Uncolto dei Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa, will open its doors after an urban redevelopment project implemented by Averna, the famous amari brand, in collaboration with the Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa community. This is one of the last pieces of the massive renovation that began with the purchase of the former Ducrot factory area in the mid-1990s. On the night of the Press Open, it was Roy Bashi who took the podium, while today Beat Full will stage events open to the public in this new space.
After a year of conception and project by architect Francesca Italiano, Averna Spazio Open appears on an area of more than 2,000 square meters that will be the scene of important cultural events. It starts with Beat Full Fest (August 31-September 3) which will bring Miss Keta to the Averna Spazio Open Theatre, among others. It continues with Sponde Sonore (always in September), Mercurio Festival (September to October), and Piano City (in October).
Abandoned for years, the former ‘uncultivated space’ has been remodeled into a garden courtyard with aromatic plants and herbs, with a relaxation area that is today the scene of events and concerts, with tables and chairs available for study and work, with an amphitheater but also with an outdoor bar. The space will be available to cultural workers who embrace her “mood”. In fact, the Averna Spazio Open will not only be dedicated to good events that may be of interest to the local community, but is also looking for ideas. The “Call for Ideas” is already active, a way of putting the creativity of the many talents on the island at the service of space, who thus have the opportunity to propose topics, initiatives and activities to be carried out in the new centre.
