NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti
THE LITTA VARIATIONS / 4th Movement – Palazzo Litta, Corso Magenta 24, Milano
In collaboration with: Repower
In the four decades of its history, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) has investigated the concept of living, which over the years has increasingly combined with exploration of the new technologies. Thinking about the relationship between interior and exterior is the current idea of living on the move. NABA presents a prototype that investigates the potential offered by self-driving, allowing a slow use of what was once defined as the road: the city slows down, and in return offers fluidity, sustainability, and the ability to use travel time in a useful and pleasant way. The system, based on power supply technologies, is reorganised according to the actions it can host, and implies a cultural leap in our concept of means of transport and charging. Leaving Room is an open reflection that leads to the re-appropriation of private time, of silence, and of new and ancient rituals originally connected to the sphere of living.
