The consortium of social cooperatives called Il Mosaico was founded in 1994 and now it is present in the provinces of Gorizia and Udine. Forty years after the promulgation of Law 180, an overturned of perception and treatment of mental illness, placed Italy as one of the most advanced Countries in the world in the field of psychiatry. The consortium felt the need to celebrate this anniversary with a collective and awareness-raising action.
Creaa organized a self-made dinner night, set in the Piazza Grande of the Town Hall of Palmanova, and entitled Il mare… a Palmanova (The sea in… Palmanova). The idea comes from Renato Basaglia’s words, author of the Law 180, “We have shown that the impossible becomes possible”; the output was to symbolically move the sea where the sea cannot exist, to symbolize an apparently unrealizable objective, becoming realizable with the contribution of all the participants – about 1400 -, each one a drop of this human small lake.
Creaa was part of the conception, design, realization and promotion of the event.
