As part of the cultural events of Marmomac 2018, an exhibition was presented, focusing on educational and research experiences involving the experimentation with the use of stone materials, carried out by the departments of architecture and design of Italian universities in collaboration with companies and professional art schools.
The Young Stone Project exhibition was installed in a dedicated space outside Hall 1 in Verona. It has hosted stone objects and prototypes produced as part of research projects developed as part of design courses in universities already engaged in recent years in the field of education and different levels of ongoing research and doctorates on design using stone materials.
The exhibition brings together products developed by research in five universities: Polytechnic University of Bar, Department of Architecture; University of Pescara, Department of Architecture; University of Rome La Sapienza, Department of Civil Engineering; University of Ferrara - Department of Architecture; Academy of Fine Arts of Cignaroli in Verona; in collaboration with the San Zeno School in the marble sector in Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella and the School of Construction in Verona.
The event was made possible thanks to the support and collaboration of many Italian companies in the marble and processing machinery sector. These companies will implement the projects developed by these students in the form of prototypes, which will then be exhibited at Marmomac.
The link between universities and local areas works very well in the stone industry thanks to the initiative of a group of architects and designers who not only wish to include these materials in their courses, but above all broaden the interest shown by many companies in university research, to the point of involving them enthusiastically in this knowledge exchange.
