Platform for Change is an observatory on the world of art, architecture and design through the lenses of one of the most influential independent cultural centres of the contemporary art world and one of the most lively projects of the reassessment and rebirth of a dying city: the Farm Cultural Park in Sicily. A book that is also a map and a compass for orienting oneself in constructing the trajectories necessary for imagining and stimulating visions of all sizes, through the mirrored tale of Farm’s inspiring models of Farm and those of the processes that Farm has set in motion.
The book is organized in five chapters: 1) Start with culture and joy. How to create an atmosphere 2) Take care of people. How to build a community 3) Say Yes we can. How to spread trust and enthusiasm 4) Think happiness is everywhere. How to storytell your city 5) Move! Do something. How to change the world.
LetteraVentidue is one of the leading independent architecture and design publishers in Italy.
The publishing house was conceived in Siracusa in 2007 thanks to the energy of a group of young architects who consider the book to be an essential tool for the dissemination of knowledge, as well as a timeless and elegant design object. Each book is finely tailored through constant communication between author and publisher regarding the content, graphic design, and editorial presentation.
In 10 years of business, LetteraVentidue has published around 250 books by Italian and international authors, and has recently begun to translate some of its best-selling titles into English.
