Home - Events - “Archeoplastica” Una Mostra che Racconta Storie di Plastica Emersa dal Mare e Che riporta A Galla un Mare di Ricordi.
Opening Thursday, March 16 at 5 p.m. at the Priamar Commissioner’s Palace in Savona is the exhibition “Archeoplastica. 50 Years of Beached Waste.
Vices and virtues of plastic between product design, advertising and eco-sustainability.”
Archeoplastica is a national environmental awareness project conceived by Enzo Suma to raise awareness of the problem of plastic pollution and promote a more conscious and responsible use of this material. For the first time it is being proposed in Liguria, following the success of the exhibition in Pisa in collaboration with National Geographic.
“Since the Archeoplastica project was launched, it has had incredible media coverage. All the major national television networks have taken an interest in the project: from Tg1 to Rai3’s GEO program, and recently it was a guest on Drusilla on Rai2. Archeoplastica is also a Social Community with half a million followers between Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. “We are happy to spread also in the Savona area an educational project aimed at citizens, institutions, tourists, young people and students from schools in the area that aims to emphasize how the concept of sustainabilitỳ today is one of the priorities̀ to which our communities̀ are obliged to reflect.” Says Fabio Mordeglia President of the Visioni Association, which brought the exhibition to Savona.”
“This exhibition intends, to use an expedient often used in contemporary art, starting with Duchamp’s ready-mades: to create estrangement and surprise in the visitor by presenting trash as museum exhibits of Archeoplastica.” Says Monica Brondi curator of the exhibition together with Irene Avino of Punto a capo. “This initiative aims to make people think about consumption choices and individual and collective behaviors that, with greater awareness, can change to reduce pollution of the seas of rivers and the environment.” After an initial moment of wonder, these shipwrecked objects on Italian beaches take us back in time to when some of us used those objects or saw them in Carosello advertisements or commercials, which will be displayed or projected in the exhibition. An exhibition that is a journey through the history of plastic, Made in Italy design and eco-sustainability, an exhibition that enhances experiences of institutions and companies that believe in and work for a more environmentally conscious and respectful development such as Consorzio Corepla, First Corporation and SAT servizi.
“There is a need to shed light on the impact of plastic on the environment, which is not so much due to its production as to its disposal. The high use of this material, especially single-use, has caused the so-called ‘plastic pollution’ on the environment due to abandoned waste. This does not mean that plastic should be banned in all its forms, but that it is necessary to properly address the problem of its disposal and to choose when it is really beneficial to use it. Our products are long-lasting and 100 per cent recyclable’. Concludes Omar Mantelli Vice President First Group.
