In the second phase “To seed” we started to work in the selected places. In Taranto we chose an archaeological park that has never been opened. A big billboard, a fake building permit designed by people, states that the inhabitants are now the owners of the park and responsible for the construction work.
Together with Plastique Fantastique we created a temporary object as an urban catalyst. The syn-thetic structure affects the surrounding spaces. The intervention opened a public debate and slowly started to transform the collective imagination.
Simultaneously, a group of citizens decided to organize a big concert on Labour Day to express their problems and hopes. Fifty thousand visitors witnessed the power of a self-organized event and rediscovered the forgotten archaeological park.
