On Wednesday 4th April 2012 the second phase of Ri come… has opened at Gavirate’s Chiostro di
Voltorre. Ri come… is a travelling exhibition on ethical consumption and the reduction, reuse and
recycling of waste.
Ri come… is an educational interactive exhibition for young people from 6 to 99 years of age. Its aim is to suggest a few simple actions that help reducing waste in everyday life. The exhibition also includes a selection of objects made of recycled materials.
ilVespaio and Romborosa have cooperated to the exhibition display opting for recycled and re-used
materials. They have designed boxlike modular units that contain the specimens so that they can be
moved and mounted easily. The interactive display has been planned to stimulate children’s curiosity. The graphics and the contents of the exhibition have been selected so as to make it enjoyable for younger children as well as adults.
Ri come…is part of a cross-border cooperation operational programme between Italy and Switzerland. It will tour the Provincia di Varese and the Ticino Canton (CH), after its opening at Varese’s Villa Recalcati, where there have been 1,500 visitors in two weeks.
ilVespaio is a network of professionals active in the field of ecodesign and sustainability.
Romborosa is a design and visual communication studio.
