Premio Ricas is promoted by Rotary Club Milano Villoresi and Rotaract Milano Sforza with the aim of supporting and promote talents and creativity. Dedicated to the young under 26, collaborates with Careof in order to create moments of comparison, exchange and visibility, offering an opportunity for personal and professional growth.
The theme of this edition is focused on Milan and in particular on Chinatown, a milanese historical district because of its massive immigration from the Zhejian region since the first years of 1900 and also the place where Careof is based. Today it is in great transformation, but it has always been a theatre of exchange, passage, meeting and even tensions, Chinatown in the last century has seen the succession of activities related to silk, to leather up to the management of services like supermarkets, herbalists and internet points, becoming a point of reference for chinese citizens and place of fascination for italians.
Thus, on the wake of the last edition, the prize has offered to ten young under 26 the opportunity to partecipate in a three days workshop led by Lupo&Burtscher Studio, which was divided into an investigation on the district and a restitution through graphic drawings that have been printed in silkscreen with the technical support of Edizioni Perpetua.
Then there will be a video with an interview to Angelika and Daniele realized by the students of Liceo Artistico Caravaggio in Milan during the project Alternanza Scuola Lavoro:
Starting from the question Where are you from? The workshop wanted to analyze the different ways of relation between the district and the city, through the meeting and the story of people who live and work everyday in the district. The desire is to deepen the concept of district and the sense of belonging to a group in order to build possible maps that can draw new relational paths.
The partecipants have realized some documentation booklets both visual and textual of their own researches carried out in Chinatown district, tap to download and watch them!
