Open Vicoli: two days to tell our story and lay foundations for the future

By 4 February 2021No Comments

Thursday 10 and Friday 11 December: an online event to learn about Open Vicoli, the cultural rediscovery and regeneration project based in the historical centre of Genoa, which is now drawing to an end.


Two days of public meetings and presentations online for everyone involved in the project, to take stock of the process and reach an agreement regarding the future of the historical centre of Liguria’s capital, making time to talk about what has been achieved and discuss how to continue working as a network.

Open Vicoli is the project funded by the Open Community tender of Compagnia di San Paolo. BAM! has been working on it for the last two years, supporting the construction of a network of partnerships between public and private bodies with the objective of trying out different engagement and participation models, drawing in communities that are often excluded from the use of cultural heritage.

During the two days of meetings, which you are all invited to attend, we will try to illustrate the value of the network in a project that has united museums, social groups and cultural associations that are based or operate in the streets of Genoa’s historical centre.



Thursday 10 December, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – Round Table: Engagement and Culture

A virtual round table involving lots of guests, to discuss projects that deal with culture and engagement in Genoa and beyond, starting with the projects supported by the Compagnia di San Paolo’s Open and Civica tenders.


Friday 11 December, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Open Vicoli presents itself to the city

A virtual meeting to discuss Open Vicoli. Two years after the project launch, the network is set to present itself to the city, starting with the results it has achieved.

Take a look at the Facebook event to discover the comprehensive programme with all the guests over the two days

The meetings will take place live on the Open Vicoli Facebook page.


BAM! has been working alongside Il Laboratorio cooperative – the project leader made up of twenty partners – from the very start, initially helping to draw up and plan Open Vicoli before playing the role of community manager, helping to activate the community network, train those involved and facilitate the public engagement processes.
