Copertino - Italy

Prélude is the opening event of TOC Centre. It is a moment in which we communicate to the public the renovation process of the Clock Tower of Copertino - a space that has been closed for the past 30 years and is finally reopening. The Clock Tower will serve as a venue for installations, artistic residencies, workshops, and offices.

Through exhibitions, film performances, and events concentrated around Piazza del Popolo (the main square of Copertino), Prélude is an exploration of the topics of multisensory and cultural accessibility, using moving images and time-based arts as tools.

The exhibitions are hosted in various locations in Copertino, starting with the Clock Tower, where visitors can view the work of Labuat - a collective of architects - along with designers Bruna Sigillo and Gabriella Mastrangelo, sound designer Giuseppe Maietta, and visual artist Pamela Campagna.

Live performances of moving images take place in Piazza del Popolo by the artistic collective Nominoë and their expanded cinema performance "Parallax." The "Sala Civica" is presented as the TOC Pavilion, showcasing "Closeness" - a visual soundscape created by Rossella Piccinno and the multisensory visualization of the Clock Tower realized by Diomede Stabile with the support of the students of the association Giacche Verdi.

"Colours," an expanded installation by Nominoë, will be visible until October 4th in the Ex Monastery of Clarisse. Prélude concludes with a final party on the terrace roof of the Ex Monastery, featuring a DJ set by Cosimo Terlizzi - aka DJ Cocco - in collaboration with Quiet Zone.

All exhibitions and installations are accessible for people with disabilities.
