many possible cities
On the occasion of the Many Possible Cities festival, artist and architect Andreas Angelidakis presents ‘Ponte’ (bridge), an open call which aims to produce a large collective exhibition, taking bridges as its theme. Florence itself is famous for one of the most radical bridges of all time, Ponte Vecchio, connecting the two banks of the river as well as the people who live there. Angelidakis is asking the community to contribute to the exhibition with depictions, models and collages of bridges. Any type of bridge can be imagined or remembered, a bridge to cross, or to take shelter under. The exhibition is only the destination, the real journey is in creating an opportunity to generate a temporary community, a moment of meeting and discussion, in which the voice of an artisan or a child have the same value as those of an engineer or an architect
