Gardentopia is the Matera2019 project on green culture and active citizenship bred by contemporary art: a green utopia that transforms gardens into community places that are accessible to all citizens, with the involvement of 18 artists coordinated by the curator Pelin Tan who will work on 32 community gardens spread throughout the region.

The artist Luigi Coppola will work alongside the citizens in the community garden of Cirigliano.

Luigi Coppola is an artist who works in public art, performance, video and installation. He researches participatory practices and politically-motivated actions, starting by analyzing specific social, political, and cultural contexts, as inScuola di Agriculture (2017 - ongoing), a pedagogical platform led by Coppola in Castiglione d’Otranto, Puglia, Italy that combines agro-ecological learning with artistic strategies and builds upon the participatory and commoning dynamics of the community of migrants, farmers and activists who formed the cooperative Casa delle Agriculture (House of Agricultures). His artistic practice comes from a combination of various educational and professional experiences. He trained both as a scientist (Environmental Engineering, PhD in Risk Analysis) as well as in the art field (Visual and Performing Arts). He was associated Artistic Director of the Urban Art Biennale in Bordeaux - Evento 2011, art for an urban re-evolution and part of the research group Art in society at the Academy of Tilburg NL. Coppola was a 2017/2018 Fellow at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht NL.
