WORKSHOP # 1 – Francesca Belgiojoso

“Free associations. Short experiential workshop on collage as a tool for self-reflection”

Sangallo Palace Hotel, “Tenaglia” Room – h. 15-17

Participants will have the opportunity to work by experiencing regressive collage as an instrument of personal narrative.
The collage begins with an experience of “untying”, in which participants gather images, or parts of them, when they trigger an emotion, a memory or when they resonate with a small part of them.
Participants project different aspects of themselves in these fragments of a still non-composed puzzle, and then they tie them together, thus building a form, which is rich with new meanings.
In fact, the essential aspect of the collage is the work of creating links: links between the images in the compositions, between images and experiences, between imagination and affections. (J.P. Petit).
The collage can be considered as a ” ball-of-wool narrative” that needs to be understood (A. Ferro), paying attention not to over-interpret, since everything here, like in a dream, can have multiple meanings.

WORKSHOP # 2 – Barbara Pasquariello and Giancarla Ugoccioni

“The poetry hidden in images. Exploration of our way of perceiving the world through images and poetry ”

Sangallo Palace Hotel, “Sperone” Room – h. 15-17

Images evoke emotions, memories; they allow us to introduce ourselves to the world, to recognize and reveal parts of ourselves. Writing allows us to give our thoughts and imagery a voice, to communicate emotions and feelings, to express our own individuality.
The encounter between these two languages creates a bridge between the non-verbal and the verbal, and it enables us to connect images to words, in search of our own inner poetry.
A workshop to explore and search for “our own way of perceiving the world” through the language of images and creative poetic writing. An opportunity for discussion, connection and experimentation, with the aim to develop creativity, to improve inner communication and to search for the poetry hidden inside us.

WORKSHOP # 3 – Oliviero Rossi

“The action of images”

Sangallo  Palace Hotel, “Tenaglia” Room –  h. 17,30-19,30

The workshop aims to initiate the participants to the use of therapeutic theatrical and video modalities according to the basic existential and humanistic characteristic of Gestalt therapy.

The use of the theater and the video camera becomes a means of therapy for individual growth in a group setting and offers the potential to exploit the hidden abilities in everyone.

It facilitates the expression of the experiences of the participants related to some issues that concern them while stimulating creativity and socialization.

The three postulates of Gestalt: being in the present, responsibility and awareness are stimulated in a context in which they take shape the visual dramatization of their life script.

WORKSHOP # 4 – Floriana Di Giorgio

“FotOnirica. Experential workshop for self-knowledge through Dream and Photography”

Sangallo Palace Hotel, “Sperone” Room –  h. 17,30-19,30

Dreams enable us to come into contact with hidden and unknown aspects of ourselves. Every dream is an image of one’s own path in life – a photo of one’s inner world, connected with the dreamer’s life history and his/her current state.
Photography can help the dreamer to contact his/her dreams: understanding, exploring and amplifying the dream image.
Through a screening and identification process, every dream, like every photo (even when not produced by the subject) enables a contact and a comparison with oneself.
With this in mind, the workshop is intended as a space where participants, starting from a dream-stimulus, can confront themselves and experiment through photographs.
