Publink has been selected for Echogreen Call for ideas. The goal of the call was finding 10 innovative projects that would be models for a sustainable transformation of the Trasimeno area.
Publink submitted Trampolieri. These interactive sculptures are deigned to encourage the contemplation of the landscape and to appreciate the observation of changes of seasons slowness. A trampoliere is monocle in wood placed in a strategic point where it is possible to watch a fascinating sight of the landscape. The public can put their head into the sculpture, for discovering unexpected details in a sound isolation ambient.
Publink presented Trampolieri project on 19th September 2014 at Magione Palaecomeeting
ECOISMI is a contemporary art event in the heart of the Natual Park of Island Borromeo in Cassano d’Adda (Milan – Italy).
ECOISMI’s leitmotiv is the binomial man and nature.
The exhibition schedules the realization of twelve (n° 12) art works in full harmony with the identity of the Natural Park area.
Publink presented the Palafrutta, an interactive sculpture that facilitates the experience of “climb up the tree”.
It is built around a fruit tree in the park and allows people to more easily gather the fruit. It also enables anyone to “experience” the tree easily, making an experience from a point of view, otherwise denied.
Through Palafrutta the action of grasping the fruit and climb the tree, are retrieved to discover a close relationship with nature. The installation which made of wood, allows access to an unusual vantage point of space and physically bring people to the tree, inhabiting it.
After a workshop promoted by Fondazione March and in collaboration with Francesco Carreri / Stalker , Publink with Aspramente, Ninanó and Orizzontale has realized a redevelopment project of a green industrial zone through the language of contemporary art.
Get a look to Fondazione March’s site too!

Art. Regulation 93 -18/08/2000 of the Urban Policy in Venice, prohibits sitting in Piazza San Marco “outside spaces used specifically for this purpose (…)”, with a penalty of a €25-500 fine.
On the occasion of the “ 92.ma Collettiva giovani” with the support of the Bevilacqua La Masa Gallery, in 2008 Publink requested the Venice City Council the opportunity to create a free sitting space at the centre of Piazza San Marco on 7th December 2008
An area of 5 square meters (dashed right [don’t think this is necessary]) in the middle of the square, where it’s possible have a 360-degree view of one of the most beautiful places in the world. Here, passersby could sit freely on the ground for the duration of the (intervention[I think “event” would be more suitable than “intervention”]), without being subject to fines.
Thanks to this project, the public had the chance, otherwise unlawful, for a temporary occupation of a place that belongs to everyone.
Publink created a virtual community of people who have “adopted a litter.” Using social networks such as Facebook, email and a blog, the open-call invited people who have recovered an object from the street or from waste, to take a picture and to send it to Publink.
All photos were added to a blog (www.rifiutiadottati.blogspot.com) and photographic installation at the event “ Riciclarti” , Padova – Italy.
The aim of this project is to make people aware of the increasing amount of rubbish we throw away and choices for its disposal. How many times have we thought to ourselves “What a pity to throw this away!”. It just shows how often people throw away items which can still be used. RCA wants to change our attitude towards these objects and offer them a second life: if we throw away something “with love”, then someone else may “love it again”. What has become useless to someone, can become useful to someone else.
RCA enables the public to think twice before getting rid of unnecessary belongings and points out the importance of “wasting” in a critical and conscious way.
The project is implemented through the RCA dustbin system.
Provided with transparent sliding doors and separate compartments, the RCA dustbin allows you to store all objects which have been “wasted with love”. The dustbin can be compared to a shop window creating a link between what is inside and outside of it: instead of “throwing” and “ransacking” you can just “leave” an item and “choose” another one in exchange.
Formerly seen as a place where rubbish is stored, the dustbin becomes a place of “exchange”.
RCA dustbins can be found along the streets or in public spaces (libraries, schools, meeting centres, etc..)
RCA dustbin is a public wardrobe at all the citizens’ disposal.
How it works
RCA awakens public opinion to a new habit: Wasting with love. It is necessary to adapt communication on this project to the specific needs of the public, in order to show how the dustbin must be used and its function in the most efficient way.
A lot of information will be published and both public authorities and municipalities will work hand in hand with RCA people on the smooth running of the project.
Waste with love and loving again mean:
– to reduce the quantity of waste heading to incineration or to the dump
– to prolong the life cycle of an item for a more sustainable use of the resources
– to put used items back on the market and avoid the exploitation of raw materials for the production of new ones.
By encouraging all citizens to recycle, RCA works following the rule of the 4 R: (1997 Decreto Ronchi http://www.parlamento.it/leggi/deleghe/97022dl.htm)
1. Reduction of the quantity of the products wasted
2. Use second-hand material
3. Recycle used materials
4. Recycle waste as a new source of energy
RCA is a concrete answer to the needs of several municipalities to find a solution for environmental problems. Waste with love and loving back are “good practices”, important habits within all those communities that want to create a more ecological and sustainable society.
