1987 - 2017 • Un compleanno lungo un anno
We asked to twelve artists to “spark” a thoguht for Careof and give us a special greeting card.
30 years have passed, whether they could seem too many or just few doesn’t really matter. 30 is still a beautiful number, it comes out well written, read, played and sung.
We want to tell you our story, but like all long stories, full of passages and relationships, we won't do it alone. This will be a choral year, a milestone that will beat the time still suspended between a past and a future that is already here and now.
To celebrate its moment of vanity, we first asked 12 artists to "spark" a thought for Careof and to give us a special greeting card, which we will share with you every month.

CAMPANE PER CAREOF
The sound of bells has always been a point of reference for everyday life and social life of people, especially in the country, not only for ecclesiastics or to mark the time, but in their different ways of playing, people could hear a village, a dead man, an alarm, a party ...
People who lived in the countryside or worked in the fields, relied on the 12 o'clock touch to break for lunch, or to calculate the time for irrigation shifts.
A few years ago, in my village after an evening of music, around 4 am, a young man (the day after it was discovered that he was Spanish) climbed the bell tower of the square playing the bells for a long time, in an unusual way. The next morning some people were alarmed, they came from the countryside to the square, to see what had happened.
FEBRUARY: YURI ANCARANI
Un abbraccio per Careof
A hug from Da Vinci, the last film in the trilogy on the work of Yuri Ancarani, finished editing in 2013, when Yuri was in residence at Careof. A mechanical but gestural, strongly symbolic embrace, which, as in the film, emphasizes the possibility of human error and a reflection on technology, equally imperfect.
MARCH: DAFNE BOGGERI
30 URL per Careof
30 candles in url format to celebrate Careof:
from the depths of the hard-disk, to the arches of the archive, a series of links that emerged to celebrate Caterina & Friends
APRIL: LUCA VITONE
Eppur si muove
The work summarizes the design of two flags: the anarchist one and the one that represents the Rom and Sinti peoples. A red wheel in perennial movement on a black background, expression of an idea of libertarian nomadism, which affirms the desire to move freely among the places of our life.
A gift for Careof that is always evolving.
MAY: LUDOVICA CARBOTTA
JUNE: MERIS ANGIOLETTI
30 anni luce - nightshifts
Nightshifts is the name of a project originally from 2005, the result of a collection and subsequent projection in real time, of photographic images taken from a telescope.
30 light years - nightshifts, extracted from the homonymous work, slowly and inexorably, illuminates this story.
JULY: LILIANA MORO
Il rumore del vento (2010) ripensata nel 2017
A sound track to celebrate these 30 years of activity.
The wind, bearer and distributor of sounds, voices, events met on its way.
Like Careof, it always listens and blows its memory to rethink or conserve it.
AUGUST: MARCO BELFIORE
Oh My Dog!
Oh My Dog! is a video animation realized in 2016 for the musical project Cosmic Bombero and here rethought in the form of wishes.
And since the droppings are a symbol of good luck, well then: TANTA MIERDA!
SEPTEMBER: DAVIDE SAVORANI
A "story" told for Careof, or even a gesture, which reduces the distances in the embrace closed in one hand.
OCTOBER: UGO LA PIETRA
Tanti Auguri Careof
Overlooking the central station of Milan, Ugo La Pietra hurls upwards, holding traces of thoughts that bind his story to ours. A white cloud full of powerful symbols, always ready to explode and trespass in the widest spaces of the sky.
NOVEMBER: THE COOL COUPLE
DECEMBER: ITALO ZUFFI
Careof 30 anni in viaggio
