The new deck of cards dedicated to the landscape heritage of Friuli Venezia Giulia and produced by Modiano will be presented during the inauguration of the exhibition “Cycle and recycling between play and identity” on Thursday 22 February at 11.00 at the Sartorio Museum in Trieste as part of the II edition of the “Le Mani d’Oro” project produced by the Opera Viva Association, in the presence of the authorities, the creator and artistic director Lorena Matic and the President of Modiano, Stefano Crechici.

The exhibition presents almost 200 materials, including illustrations of places in Friuli Venezia Giulia, sketches and studies of the dress obtained from recycled card processing, the dress itself made in real size and the new deck of cards produced by Modiano.

The photographic section with images from the Modiano Archive, completed with sound QR Codes for historical and descriptive contents of the images is also important and usable for blind audience. In fact, during the event there will also be a moment to reflect and learn together with the members of the UICI, the Italian Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired of Trieste, how gaming is a universal language, which allows integration with inclusive convivial moments through particular methods and adaptations.

The exhibition is the final stage of a journey that began with the competition of ideas in which the students of the Sello Art School of Udine participated: they produced groups of 14 illustrations corresponding to as many sites of the landscape and cultural heritage of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The illustrations of the four winning groups – one per suit – are the subjects of the new deck of cards. Among the chosen sites, it is possible to find the Aquileia site, the Friulian Dolomites, the Transalpina Square, the Giant Cave, the Devil’s Bridge, the Palù di Livenza site. The students of the Fabiani Art School in Gorizia instead recycled production waste and defective papers, transforming the materials into an innovative fabric for the manufacturing of a life-size dress, selected by the quality jury as the winner.

The detailed project “Le Mani d’Oro”, with the subtitle “Cycle and recycling between play and identity” strengthens the connection between excellent companies and the creativity of young people, through a path dedicated to the entire production cycle, which from the creation of a new product has a particular focus on the theme of recycling, in order to regenerate waste and give it a new life.

The project is conceived and directed by Lorena Matic and organized by the Opera Viva cultural association with the support of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, the contribution of the Italian Union, the collaboration of the Municipality of Trieste, of the Kulturni dom of Gorizia and the precious participation of Modiano.
