Casa Zegna holds its first orientation workshop for young people

Sunday 21 October will be dedicated to awareness of oneself and one’s qualities through the sharing of new experiences. With a rich program of activities exploring the theme of color

On Sunday 21 October Casa Zegna is for the first time organizing a orientation workshop for young people, which will close its “Ci vuole stoffa” workshop cycle inspired by the “Uomini all’italiana” exhibition (running till 28/10) but also by nature and the magnificent shades of autumn. Color will in fact be the theme of this day reserved for a small group of young people (max. 10 participants, aged from 18 to 25) and dedicated to self knowledge.

The environment, nature, relations with others and sharing experiences can help us understand our talents, values and qualities. This is the assumption underlying the workshop, in which the young participants will engage in various activities relating to the theme of color, from technology to art, from nature to fashion. We start with a robotics workshop, at 11.00, followed by a walk in the Forest of Smiles in the company of Riccardo Ruggeri, a singer and voice & speech expert. The voice as expression of self, of one’s uniqueness, and the possibility of transforming the voice into color using a spectrometer will be the themes explored on this stroll through the autumn dressed woods, where the participants, after some vocal exercises and a picnic lunch, will collect leaves according to their personal colors. At 15.00, the group moves to Casa Zegna for a special visit to the Archives and historic textiles samples and a look at relationships between dress and personality. This will be followed by an art workshop in which they will experiment with painting and colors and produce a collective composition inspired by autumnal leaves.
