IL LAZZARETTO IS THE PLACE OF CONTAGION AND CONTAMINATION, WHERE YOU CAN PLAY WITH CERTAINTIES AND BOUNDARIES, PRACTICE THE ART OF DOUBT, RAISE QUESTIONS AND ELICIT AND POSSIBLE MEANINGS. HERE, YOU ENTER CERTAIN, AND THEN DISCOVER YOURSELF BEWILDERED; YOU EXIT AMAZED, AND RETURN MORE CURIOUS THAN BEFORE.
Il Lazzaretto began in 2014 as a cultural association, and was established as a non-profit Foundation in 2017. Its mission is to put forth and develop practice-based research methods, triggering collaboration and hybridization processes.
For this purpose, the Foundation raises funds to promote and support research and initiatives based on a fruitful exchange among visual arts, psycho-physical practices and performing arts.
