Il Pianeta come Festival is a new project by Terraforma which draws its inspiration and name from the iconic series by Ettore Sottsass from 1972. Through this project, Terraforma emerges from the experience of Villa Arconati to explore new topographies. The terraformation of new landscapes takes place within the research fields that always distinguished the festival: sound, architecture and sustainability. The project aims to reinterpret Il Pianeta come Festival through a series of visual, installative and performative interventions.
