Emergenza Origami 2011

Fundraising for Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami

Origami Emergency. A brilliant initiative promoted by Francesca Barbi Marinetti, Stefania Giacomini, Emilio Sturla Furnò and Tina Vannini with the patronage and support of the Department of Cultural Policies, and Centro Storico di Roma Capitale with the patronage of the Embassy of Japan, in collaboration with the Italy Japan Foundation, to support the reconstruction of the areas hit by the earthquake and the subsequent Tsunami that devastated Japan a few months ago through a charity auction.

The creatives were invited to create a collection of works inspired by origami for charity as a gift for an exhibition and an auction whose proceeds will be donated to the areas affected by the disaster. The works donated by artists and stylists are exhibited in Rome at two locations between 15 and 26 June 2011: the Centrale Montemartini in Via Ostiense 106 – a location offered by the Department of Cultural Policies and Historic Center of Rome Capital which supports the initiative – and Il Margutta RistorArte in Via Margutta 118. The works – created and donated both by well-known and emerging artists and by well-known stylists and students of fashion, costume and art academies- will be auctioned at the Centrale Montemartini on 22 June. The proceeds will be donated entirely to the CRI which operates in the area hit by the earthquake. The event enjoys the patronage of the Embassy of Japan in Rome and the participation of “Adrenalina”, a project on the emergence of young artistic talents promoted since 2009 by the Capitoline Administration.
