Would you give something to a place? What shape does the voice of memories have? Which place would you entrust their magic to?

Many mini sculptures are scattered around the city. The purpose of this meeting is to reinterpret the meaning of the gift, understood not as something that is consumed and received, but rather as something that is produced and given. In this case, however, it is not a person who receives but a place, an emotional place.

It was a process of taking ownership of the public space through entrusting an artefact of individual memories. Research of forms and meanings that get entangled between the hands of citizens and the cracks of the city. This is to show that precious things can also be small and that above all, their beauty can also come from our own hands.

And as a conclusion we guided children and teenagers to create sculptures in terracotta to be placed around the city as Christmas gifts to the town.
