BOSCO COLTO is a way of rethinking ways of inhabiting the city and our territory, redefining our relationships with the mundane objects. surrounding us. We perceive the city as a constantly evolving, cultivated forest where cultures and cultivation intertwine, and the BOSCO as a city where a community lives and free to advocate for themselves.
RASOTERRA has been the first action of BOSCO COLTO. A week-long Campus in Santo Pietro, Caltagirone, Sicily, to explore self-construction, culture and arts during different workshop.

The two long parallel sleeves of a long-abandoned structure used as stables for competition horses, a short distance from the Social Cooperative’s farmhouse, become an opportunity to place functions related to children’s learning and outdoor experience.
A wreck waiting to be reused.
Three simple moves.
First: circumscribe this potential geometry. Cut, rotate, flip. Close. Then wrap with agricultural cloths. Wrap, conclude. Define an enclosure. Now a protected inside and a moiré outside.
Second: to insinuate a series of platforms, flexible in use and open to interpretation, theatres for outdoor activities for young visitors to the cooperative. To observe, to experience, to learn. To be together.
Then, benches and seats, work tables, areas for resting, a cistern for water, a garden to be tended, stores for tools. Other equipment. Other uses.
Other experiences. To be added over time.
On the first evening, there is music.
