Set on a hilltop overlooking the historic neighbourhood of Spagnoli Quartieri, Fondazione Mendini, an independent art centre celebrates the charming and lively culture of Naples. Inspired by #CuorediNapoli and Made in Cloister, the project creates opportunity for young local artists and master craftsmen to collaborate as well as showcase their passions, where trends dictate the laws and their future. It intends to raise awareness to Spagnoli neighbourhood’s struggle with poverty and unemployment as its people seeks for renewal and change. The project includes live art performances, a mixture of tradition and contemporary installations, film, workshop, living spaces and a sunset terrace view of Mount Vesuvius.
