The meeting is scheduled for 10.30 at Parco A. Cervi in ​​Reggio Emilia, where the artist Margherita Moscardini will present her fountain-sculpture Mahallat el-Ghouta94, Block 8, District 4, part of The Fountains of Za’atari project, result of a long work started in 2015 starting from the study of refugee camps as urban realities destined to last.
At 11.00 am we will move to the Maramotti Collection where at 11.30 a conversation will begin between the artist and Michele Di Marco, CEO of the international organization EAHR – Emergency Architecture & Human Rights.

Moscardini has carried out a census of the numerous fountains that over time have been built in the camp by refugees from Za’atari. The project is a device designed to generate a system for the sale of sculptures that reproduce the models of the courtyard with fountain by Za’atari in 1: 1 scale and can be acquired by administrations and institutions and presented in European public spaces.
Reggio Emilia is the first city to have built and adopted one of these fountains thanks to the Maramotti Collection in collaboration with the Municipality of Reggio Emilia.
