Viadellafucina16 Condominium – Museum

Via S. Giovanni Battista La Salle 16 – Turin

In the heart of the multi-ethnic district of Porta Palazzo in Turin, in via La Salle 16, there is a building inhabited by over 200 tenants from 20 countries and 5 continents, which thanks to the artist Brice Coniglio (part of the duo ConiglioViola), has become the scene of a visionary artistic project: it is viadellafucina16, the world’s first condominium-museum experiment: a place definitely out of the ordinary, the absolute protagonist of the documentary film VIADELLAFUCINA16 (ITA 2018 – 18 min) by Lucio Viglierchio and Miha Sagadin.

Three years after its birth, Tuesday, December 1, 2020 from 10.00 p.m. on the website of Artribune Television, it was possible to see a preview of the documentary for 24 hours, available from the following day on all the project channels: www.condominiomuseo.it and www.facebook.com/viadellafucina16.

Written and produced by Massimo Arvat for Zenit Arti Audiovisive and winner of the Mibact Cineperiferie competition in 2018, VIADELLAFUCINA16 tells how a multi-ethnic condominium has become a microcosm in which, through Art, it is possible to read contemporary social dynamics.

With the project viadellafucina16 Brice Coniglio has put himself and all the tenants of the building to the test through the transformative power of art, with an idea as visionary as simple: to invite young artists to spend a period of residence in the building, to create works of art for the common spaces, involving the owners in all phases of the creative process. Its history began in 2016 with a call for proposals to which 400 artists from all over the world responded: with the first residences the old building – renamed viadellafucina16, from the ancient name of the street – became the protagonist of a transformation not at all predictable.

In addition to the works of the young artists selected, the condominium-museum collection houses the works of great masters such as Michelangelo Pistoletto and Giorgio Griffa who donated their works.

Thanks to this project, in fact, a space in a state of thirty years of neglect has been transformed into a place of sharing art and beauty.

In the condominium-museum is now in progress the exhibition GentiliVicini curated by Piera Valentina Gallov with the works of the artists who took part in the residency program 2020 realized with the support of MiBACT and SIAE in Perchicrea. The first exhibition closed to the public – in compliance with the rules imposed by the last DPCM – but reserved to the about 200 inhabitants of the building.
