    “Smile and look at children as children, not as ill people: they’ll be grateful to you”. That’s Dynamo Camp’s starting point, a full spectrum recreative therapy project, destined to children affected by oncologic and other rare pathologies. Artistic laboratories, workshops and other open-air activities represent the leit motiv of this special dimension based on creativity, within a WWF oasis close to Pistoia. The aim is “to make young patients feel a little bit ill and much more light-hearted”, with entertainment activities which stimulate creativity in order to improve emotional conditions, to call a halt to

    Pietro Ruffo was born in 1978 in Rome, where he now lives and works. After studying architecture at Roma Tre University, in 2010-2011 he gained a research fellowship at Columbia University in New York. Ruffo’s art is essentially linked to the basic elements of his architectural training: design, paper and drawing. All his works actually are the result of a meticulous planning close to details, and take shape on the sheet through a delicate but incisive sign. However, they don’t retain the two-dimensionality of a table because paper, carved, gains the third dimension. The result

    “Ioedio”, which took place two years ago in Verona, was not just a simple exhibition. It was an humanistic art-therapy path meant for patients who had recently exited coma and were able to communicate through patterns and colors in order to regain a part of themselves. About ninety artworks made by patients were the interesting product of a conscious rehabilitation path. A true celebration of the power of artistic expression, used more and more together with traditional rehabilitation therapies, with the aim of regaining the abilities owned before the trauma, avoiding the post-coma confusion and

    Francesca Romana Pinzari, roman artist, was born in Perth (Australia) in 1976? She started her career in 2001 as figurative painter. She has been recently going through an artistic research regarding body and the identity phenomena in contemporary society: using different media such as videos, performances and installations, her work is developing in the form of self-portraits that tell universally known concepts in which everyone can recognize himself. Her own body is conceived by Francesca as a place of experimentation, on which, with which and through which she tends to explore the relationship between intimacy

    Two years ago the Espace Arlaud in Lausanne was still hosting the exhibition “Des Seins à Dessein”, a varied and disparate mosaic of artworks (from painting to photography, from jewelry to video-art) entirely dedicated to a careful consideration on the theme of breast cancer, which strikes more and more women worldwide. About thirty artists (from Pipilotti Rist to Christoph Zellweger, from designer Sophie Hamagarth to video-artist Judith Albert) have been invited to explore, through their own artistic production, the various implications of this emotional wound bound never to heal, with the only aim of raising
