Iuav, University of Venice | Interaction Design Lab 2| A project by Fabrizio Goglia, Claudia Miliziano, Fabio Nucatolo and Rita Petrilli.
Keepsake is an interactive, informative and site-specific installation in the Teatro Marinoni, a long-abandoned and now threatened theatre on Venice’s Lido.
It aims to resurrect, in a fragmentary and meditative way, the sights and sounds of the theatre in the 1930s, when it gave joy, serenity and fun to the patients of the neighbouring seaside hospital.
The participants become keepers of the place’s memories. Through them the theatre becomes alive again and makes people aware of its value.
