The project, carried out between the end of September and the beginning of October, provided for the creation of a dedicated space within the IUSVE with a structured itinerary of exhibition panels featuring the story of the garment presented, the origin of the fabric and sustainable approaches, all accompanied by the presence of a real wardrobe, in which clothes and fabrics from some local brands involved in this direction were exhibited.
The idea of setting up an ethical closet or wardrobe comes from the teachers Francesca Bonotto, curator and graphic designer of the exhibition, and Marco Sanavio, in relation to the brands and people known during the experience of the "ModaPuntoCom" feature column, which talks about ethical and sustainable fashion and fashion communication. For some years, in fact, thanks to the space made available by Cube Radio through the feature column and the courses, the two teachers have been addressing these issues.
“This is the first of a series of events, seminars and awareness-raising initiatives that will accompany the next three years dedicated to the Integral Ecology Project and new lifestyles,” added Fr Nicola Giacopini, director of IUSVE. “As a university, we have in fact accepted and made our own the heartfelt appeal of Pope Francis addressed to the whole world in Laudato Sì. An integral vision not only of nature but of the world, understood as a 'common home' to be preserved and made more and more hospitable for all, especially young people and those on the margins. An encyclical, the 'Laudato Sì, which is very reductive to define as simply environmental: it is eminently social. And the ethical closet is proof and example.”
