we believe that design is almost a way to build relationships
immaterial and digital layers are transforming the traditional practices of the design discipline, transforming in a subtle (but radical) way the activities of contemporary designers
relational design is a year long master class about the radical transformations happening in the design world

On 18th December the UN celebrate the International Migrants Day.
More than 40.000 migrants have arrived in Italy in 2013, 14.000 of them on the small island of Lampedusa. An army of invisible people, numbers without a face which need hospitality, food, and to be taken care of.
Fabrica, the research centre on communication, commemorates the International Migrants Day with a video, within the Sciabica project (sciabica.tumblr.com).
The International Migrants’ Day celebrates the adoption of the International Convention on the Protectio th the Rights of all Migrants: right to life, right not to be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, right not to be held in slavery or servitude, right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
Sciabica is a word of Arabic origin that means ‘fishing net’. For Fabrica, Sciabica is the net that has been cast to collect the tales of Lampedusans and migrants after the tragedy of 3rd October and it’s meant to hold public’s attention on this emergency, after all the clamour of the media. Sciabica has told the tragedy of the wandering through the desert to reach the African ports on the Mediterranean Sea, has collected the dreams and the hopes of those who’ve crossed the sea, has given voice to the sorrow of people remembering those who could not make it, has listened to the Lampedusans offering help, and has demonstrated how Italy is not the final destination, but only a forced bridge towards Europe.
On Sciabica all of us can share and participate in the discussion through the social networks.
It was a project that I discovered through TED talks & supported on Kickstarter. Throughout the process of collecting my seconds I discovered many things about myself, how I view the world in which I live and where my priority lay. It was a great project that I will continue.
