Malefatte – Participatory Workshop
The Charity Rio Terà dei Pensieri with the help of the Municipality of Venice involved local “creatives” (designers and architects) for the organisation of educational workshops inside the detention centre. The products were sold in local stores and online and the proceeds divided between the prisoners and the charity.
Working side by side with Raffaele Levorato, the Director, from 2001 to 2006 I was in charge of the graphics lab, where through a participatory project with inmates we developed the brand identity, the logo and the illustrations for the products sold outside the prison.
The “Malefatte” logo is probably my favorite project. It was the result of a participatory workshop, conceived and designed entirely by the inmates after weeks of brainstorming and discussions.
