We are open
Our work started more than a month ago. We started cleaning, defining spaces, building up all the furniture developed by Lukas Wegwerth, which we actually use to work every day at Casino Padula. We entered this place and we made it comfortable, we entered an empty space and we made it our home. Designing is part of our job, so it was easy for us to do it in our brand new school, but one thing was missing. Every respectful neighbor needs to introduce itself to all the people around, so we decided to share our place, our ideas and our projects with the whole city.
Casino Padula was an empty space; meeting friends, neighbors or simply curious people welcoming us in Matera was what we expected. Seeing it crowded was an extremely good result for us as we feel part of this community.
Opening our School’s doors was just the first step. Now that the presentations are done, we go straight on our projects, we have so much work to do!
